Jazmin: "The reason I wanted to become a Future Un-Ltd Apprentice was because I wanted to continue learning but I also wanted to gain the work experience, which is not something you will get at uni. I decided to choose Future Un-Ltd as I had heard lots of great things about the company and it looked like a great organisation to be a part off. I've been here for 2 months." Cleo: "I decided to become a Future Un-Ltd apprentice as they offered some very good Apprenticeship opportunities. I was working as a bar tender at the time but wanted to get into Administration. I have been doing the course for 8 months now."
How have you found it so far?
J: "My position in the company is an admin support worker/ receptionist. So far I have found the position challenging as I have had to learn a lot of new things but I enjoy it a lot." C: "I like my position as an administrator and recently my company gave me an opportunity to progress to work on a special contract they have. We have a great community at work, it's great being part of such a great team. We work really hard and it's challenging and busy but we make it fun. For example we go out a lot together, after-work drinks together and we all have our own nicknames (I'm Frodo). In the past we've done bowling and karaoke and soon we're going to an 80's roller disco for someone's birthday"
