Millie – Finance Apprentice at WarnerMedia

Why did you choose to do an apprenticeship?

I chose an apprenticeship as I never liked the idea of going to university and getting into debt! I like the idea of gaining my qualification whilst learning on the job as I have always enjoyed studying. I feel this is the best way for me to gain the most out of my career plan and succeed in accountancy. I also like the fact that as I learn things in my studying, I can apply them and put it into practise at work which is easier for me to understand my learning.

 

What do you enjoy most about your apprenticeship?

I enjoy the work and tasks I am being given to do. As I have got further into my apprenticeship, I have been given a lot more responsibility in the tasks I do. I also love the fact that I feel I belong in the company I work for. I feel I have been made to fit in well and am always appreciated for all the work I complete.

 

What has been your highlight so far?

My highlight so far has been going into the office and being able to meet everyone I work with. It has been nice to be able to mix with all different professionals and be able to find out and learn about their career journeys and how they have managed to get to where they are today. I thought due to the current situation it would be hard to network and meet people, but I am surprised it has been the complete opposite.

 

What advice would you give to people thinking of doing an apprenticeship?

The advice I would give to people doing an apprenticeship is to stick with it if you want one. When Coronavirus happened it took me much longer than expected to find the right apprenticeship that I wanted, but I am so glad I waited and kept applying until I found the best one that was right for me. Also, to just be honest on your application form and tell people all about you! They want to hear all about you and everything you have done so just be you!

 

What is an apprenticeship?

​​​​​​If University isn’t quite your thing, but are looking for a qualification, our apprenticeships may be appealing to you. As an apprentice, you’ll work full-time at a competitive salary. In turn, we’ll pay for you to earn a professional qualification while giving you time off to attend college/training with your peers. Apprenticeships vary in length depending on the qualification you’re studying.
