Supporting National Apprentice Week
As a growing business we wanted the opportunity to bring in and develop an Apprentice and so nearly 2 years ago we recruited our superstar Amy Sharpe to join the team.
Amy joined us whilst starting her apprenticeship course to obtain NCFE Level 2 in Business Administration, as a 17-year-old this was the first job Amy had taken and so she will be the first to admit there was a learning curve in adjusting to working life from college life!
Amy’s journey has been great to watch and really fulfilling to know we gave her that first step on the ladder in her career. We have watched Amy become more confident, develop new skills, become a real team player and seen her contribute bucket loads to the business.
Amy continued her learning and completed the Level 3 course this year which she completed with flying colours. She is now a fully trained Client Administrator and is our in-house expert on our HR software and often see’s customers to complete demonstrations or training – a million miles from the shy, quiet girl that first walked through our door.
Asking Amy what her thoughts are after completing her apprenticeship successfully:
“I started an Apprenticeship because I thought that was the best way for me to gain more experience which I wouldn’t get from just attending college. Being part of the team at Quest has helped increase my confidence, given me the skills to communicate with businesses and people professionally, basically this has taught me skills that I don’t think I would have ever gained staying at college”.
During my qualifications I have had a lot of support from my team who have all been involved in helping me with different parts of the course. This was great because I felt like my team really appreciated the work I was putting in and it made me feel a real part of the team here.
I would really recommend taking an Apprenticeship as a great way to start your career.’
We are looking forward to our continued growth meaning we take on another Apprentice and this time we have Amy ready and waiting to train them and pass on her experience first-hand.
