Hannah – People Apprentice

Getting to know about business through practical work experience

Hannah started as an apprentice in December 2017. She’d already worked part-time in a Retail store while studying for her A Levels. Rather than going to university, she liked the idea of learning on the job, earning money and getting hands-on experience at the same time. She joined People Services and is now working towards Level 3 Business Administration, with the added option of studying a Diploma in Business Administration.

"I genuinely enjoy coming to work each day and learning new things. With the apprenticeship I have a foot in the door and I’m going to make the most of the opportunity."
