What will the apprentice be doing?
There is no such thing as a typical day in Branch life at Travis Perkins. What you can expect is to gain exposure across a number of areas within your branch, allowing you to see where your strengths and interests lie and the direction you would like to develop your career in.
Your role responsibilities will require you to:
- Talk to customers on our trade counter, building strong relationships that keep them coming back to Travis Perkins
- Support our customers with their purchases by providing information on our products, preparing quotes, fulfilling their orders in the yard or taking sales over the phone.
- Work with a friendly, down to earth team to provide the 5* service our customers have come to expect from us
