At NRL we employ a number of apprentices in many challenging and varied roles, such as administration, marketing and payroll. Our apprentices help the business grow by sharing their enthusiasm to learn and strong work ethic and in return they pick up many valuable skills that will help them develop their careers and assist them in the future.
“I think my skills have greatly improved since starting in the workplace as it is a whole different experience than just studying at university. I have gained more knowledge of the working world and this has also helped to improve my skills.”
–Bradley Smith, Apprentice Administrator
Apprentices at NRL say they hope they are well-equipped to take on bigger roles and more responsibility after completing their apprenticeship. The opportunity to develop and prepare themselves for the future is what most NRL apprentices are happy to be working towards.
“In five years’ time I hope to have completed various qualifications, to have a greater understanding of all credit control processes and to have an increased responsibility within the credit control department.”
–Lewis Horsley, Apprentice Credit Control Clerk
To take a more in-depth look at how apprentices are affecting workplaces nationwide, we’ve created a handy infographic with some apprenticeship statistics which show why they are becoming more and more popular.
National Apprenticeship Week is being co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship service to raise awareness and help promote the benefits of apprenticeships. To show our support NRL will be posting daily content in our knowledge hub which will take a detailed look at the life of our apprentices. We will also be engaging on social media and discussing the event on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+, so be sure to follow NRL for all the latest updates.
