As it's National Apprenticeship Week, here we talk to our Apprentice in Business Administration, Marley Birch.
Marley is fast approaching the end of her apprenticeship, finishing at the end of this month. It's gone incredibly fast, and we don't really know what we'd do without her. Marley’s business administration apprenticeship has been a real asset to us and we have really enjoyed helping her to develop core skills and understandings. To celebrate national apprenticeship week, we have asked Marley some questions to gain insight into her experience working for European Recruitment.
I started my apprenticeship on 28th March 2017
Every morning I set up our healthy snacks table for the office and make sure the office is a tidy and safe working environment for our staff. I then work through my emails, send out any CV’s we've received from our website to all Consultants and work on various reporting tasks for the different job boards and databases we use
I like that I always have a variety of tasks to do and that I'm learning something new all the time. It's also a really nice atmosphere to be in when working, because, as well as getting on with each other and being able to have a bit of a chat, we can still focus and get on with our work
Yes, I have learnt a lot through the different pieces of work that I have to complete and I've gained skills I will be able to use going forward in my career
My apprenticeship has taught me how to handle different situations and different tasks in an office environment, as well as how to produce reports and analyse data that then helps our consultants understand their own working day
Yes, I think doing an apprenticeship helps with learning new skills and you get a lot of information based on the type of work you are doing
Make sure you're focusing on both your work and getting the pieces of coursework done for your apprenticeship throughout your working week, as the coursework for your apprenticeship may help with something you are doing at work
With Marley approaching the end of her apprenticeship and our company growing fast, we've just hired a new apprentice this week to join our team. We'll be welcoming our new team member in the coming weeks, so watch out for further updates!
