What’s your current role and how long have you been with Mercedes-Benz?
“I’m a degree apprentice in Fleet Programmes – part of the Fleet team handling corporate and business customers who are buying or leasing cars for their business. We’re a very collaborative team, working closely with the Campaigns team to ensure we’re competitive.
“I’m a degree apprentice so I’m working full time whilst also studying, it’s a nice balance of university and real-world work, ensuring I’m getting industry experience.”
What does an average day look like for you?
“Even though my job roles vary, I have set days for specific tasks with Monday looking specifically at benchmarking. The rest of my week is flexible, tasks are shaped by what either the business, my manager or I personally need. I have a weekly meeting on what the best use of my time will be with tasks delegated based on where I’m at with my university work. Thankfully I’m on top of my academic work so I’m flexible to take lots on – I found early on that if I stay on top of my academic work, I can have time to relax and find that nice balance.”
