Meet Kirsten – business administration apprentice
We met up with Kirsten, business administration apprentice, based in Hastings, who joined the Company earlier this year on an apprenticeship programme.
Before joining the Company, Kirsten studied Business at Sussex Coast College, Hastings – deciding to join the Company to put the business knowledge learnt at college into practice within a business environment. As part of the apprenticeship, Kirsten is studying Level 3 Business Administration.
“Having the opportunity to learn new on-the-job skills, with plenty of room for progression was a big influence in applying for the apprenticeship.”
So far during the apprenticeship, Kirsten has been busy learning more about the Company, receiving a mix of business administration tasks, such as monitoring schedules of work and attending different meetings with different department managers.
“The best thing is that there is the flexibility to be able to progress – learning different job roles in other departments such as manufacturing, development, engineering, finance, and testing.”
