After joining us last August, our latest apprenticeship graduate, Jess, has spent the past year with our education team. Working closely alongside our primary team as an account manager, Jess will continue with the success she has already achieved in this role and begin her full-time recruitment career here at Athona. We spoke to Jess about her experiences as an apprentice at Athona and asked what advice she has for anyone looking to undertake an apprenticeship.
Before I joined Athona, I attended sixth form and had a part time role at a David Lloyd Leisure Centre as a Kids Coach.
Athona was referred to me by a friend and she suggested I should enquire more about the apprenticeship scheme.
I was initially nervous, but I settled in very quickly and have supportive colleagues to work with.
The education team are very supportive and were welcoming from the start. I get on well with my colleagues and they’re always really helpful if I ever have any questions.
I really enjoy that I am constantly speaking to clients and candidates and getting to know them. I definitely think this helps with the delivery of my customer service.
My best advice would be to ensure that you start an apprenticeship in an industry that is of genuine interest to you, as this helps you to enjoy your work.
I hope to continue a successful future at Athona.
Congratulations again Jess, we can’t wait to see you flourish even further in your role and look forward to your exciting future here at Athona!
