Alex’s Apprenticeship Diaries


Alex’s Apprenticeship Diaries


Through the recruiting and interviewing process, to finding out I’d been successful in securing the position of Apprentice Administrator, and being welcomed into Economit, the journey has been a unique experience. I have been given a fantastic opportunity to work closely with the Office Manager, Charlotte, and shadow her during my first week.

Having previously worked as a Waitress in a busy restaurant and also in a Veterinary Practice, I’d like to think that I have transferable experience in various areas. These include, customer service skills, booking appointments, understanding different software, answering telephone calls in a polite and efficient manner and dealing with customer concerns and complaints professionally.

My role as Business Administrator, gained through an apprenticeship scheme, means I get to learn on the job whilst getting hands on experience.  I think apprenticeships are a brilliant training opportunity to be a part of.

I know the basics of technology, like most young people, but getting to know Economit as a business and understanding what they do is an exciting challenge. As a new starter I‘m learning a completely new language and will be looking at things with a whole new perspective.
