What does an average day look like for you?
“My days vary depending on what tasks and projects I'm doing. I'm currently leading on a project about how we store and share information.
“I've worked on gathering requirements for the project, looking through documentation to examine what I'll specifically need to analyse. I'm currently at the point of preparing to present a solution off the back of my research. I have a mentor in the IT team who I can lean on, which has been really helpful for support.”
Why did this apprenticeship appeal to you?
“My degree is debt free and doesn't cost me a penny – it's accredited by MK:U, a new university set up by Cranfield University. It's very L&D focused, I get 20% off-the-job training meaning I’m at university once a week and there’s a big emphasis on support and ensuring that apprentices can progress early on in their careers.
“I love that there are just endless opportunities within my apprenticeship. I've learnt so much in my current role and I've still got to rotate five more times. When I leave I’ll have six areas of expertise that I'll be able to take forward. My next rotation is going to be within the Application and Integration team, and I can't wait to get started.”
