At NRL, our apprentices use their ever-evolving set of skills to benefit the company. We currently employ four apprentices: two apprentice administrators, one marketing apprentice and one apprentice credit control clerk. In the past, some of our apprentices have even gone on to earn a permanent position at the company after their apprenticeship was complete.
Jessica Stenberg, one of our apprentice administrators, has now been working at NRL for 8 months. Jessica believes that she made the right choice by choosing an apprenticeship and says that her time at NRL has given her a great insight into the career she wishes to pursue. She comments:
“I decided that I wanted to pursue a career as full-time education was not for me so I applied for an apprentice role. I enjoy my job role as I am learning every day and I am always challenged to do new things. I would tell anybody who is looking to do an apprenticeship that it is a great opportunity to develop new skills and gain qualifications while earning a salary.”
–Jessica Stenberg, Apprentice Administrator
Like Jessica, our other apprentices have been hard at work to gain their qualifications and help the company. Our other apprentice administrator, Bradley Smith, completed his Level 2 qualification in business administration and is now completing his Level 3 qualification and our apprentice credit control clerk Lewis Horsley has used his strong mathematics skills to assist the credit control team with posting incoming payments and chasing any unpaid invoices.
Our apprentices say that the skills they have learned and developed while working at NRL will be invaluable for the future and that they use them regularly on a day-to-day basis. Our apprentices have also been given coursework to do to gain their qualification and they are happy with the amount of support they have received to help accomplish this:
“I learn new things every day by working at NRL. My colleagues are very supportive and we work together as a team to get our work done. I feel that I am well on my way to earning my qualification and it’s a great feeling to know that I can have an impact at the company at the same time.”
