Why did this apprenticeship appeal to you?
“My original plan was to go straight to university after sixth form, but I realised that the normal route maybe wasn’t for me and I saw an advert for this apprenticeship through Multiverse on social media.
“Before applying, I had a look at the Mercedes-Benz careers site, and it was really motivating to hear from people like me who had left sixth form and find out about the type of support I was able to get.”
What attracted you to Mercedes-Benz?
“I’ve always had a love of vehicles and cars and a strong interest in technology, so when I saw the apprenticeship, it was an opportunity to merge these passions.
“The business has really given me a chance to learn and progress – there’s a supportive culture around the business, with my team pushing me to learn and be the best I can be.”
Has anything surprised you about coming to Mercedes-Benz?
“I had the preconception that it would be a really corporate atmosphere, but I was completely wrong. Everyone’s friendly and takes the time to make each other feel welcome, there’s signposting to support and it just makes it a lovely place for people to come, especially for their first career role.
“I would highly recommend the apprenticeship to anyone who might not think university is an option for them. It’s a different route and an opportunity to learn whilst working full time, meet new people and gain new skills that you might not otherwise.
