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.
