After earning one of only sixteen spots on the Get into Retail course, Jonny was put forward for a six-month internship at Standard Life, gaining the experience he required to secure a full time job at Lloyds Banking Group as a Telephone Mortgage Advisor.
Jonny, who once considered himself to be a reclusive individual feeling cut off from life's opportunities, sought change and found it through The Prince's Trust employability programme.
In 2016 Jonny was honoured for his achievement at The Trust’s Celebrate Success Awards, as one of only three finalists for the KMPG Rising Star Award. Since then, Jonny has continued to carve out a career in the financial sector, and is currently a Fund Administrator at a major investment company.
‘I’ve had so many good experiences since I completed the Get Into programme. I’m enjoying the process of building my career in the sector, and I’ve made lifelong friends along the way.’
Although Jonny is unsure about where his career will eventually take him, he knows he deserves to feel supported, understood and valued. With newly acquired skills, renewed confidence and a determination to seize the opportunities that come his way, Jonny is sure to find his niche.
