My name is Sophie, I am currently in my first year of a Level 2 Business Administration Apprenticeship with ABP in the Humber. I work as a Front of House Assistant/Administration Assistant within the Executive Support Team. I believe an apprenticeship is a great way of learning new skills whilst working and having a great career at the same time, which will add to my future career prospects and opportunities.
My job role involves many different activities, from front of house duties to organising company events.
They provide me with the guidance I require to progress with my apprenticeship, and I am constantly learning new skills on the job and gradually taking on more responsibilities. I really enjoy the diversity of the job as I get an insight into different departments as well as working around the different ports in the Humber region.
I really enjoy working in my department with the other members of the Executive Support team.
My highlight of the apprenticeship, so far, would be my involvement in the organisation of the Masquerade Christmas Ball. I attended the venue the day before, assisting my team with decorating and ensuring everything was perfect for the night. It was a great insight into the amount of effort that goes into planning company events and is something I enjoy and would love to be involved with more in the future.
I would certainly recommend the apprenticeship route to anyone starting out in their chosen career or wishing to progress further.
