Arjan- Financial Planning & Analysis EMEA (Consumer Products) Apprentice

Posted: 1st of November 2019 by Parisha

My Apprenticeship at Warner Bros.

I am currently here on an 18-month apprenticeship, studying towards an Assistant Accountant Level 3 qualification. I work in the Consumer Products division.

Prior to starting my apprenticeship, I was studying towards a Civil Engineering degree at University.

Having realised I wasn’t enjoying my university course during my second year, I decided to look into careers I was genuinely interested in and that's when came across the Warner Bros Finance Apprenticeship.

I felt the structure of learning whilst working suited me better and that it would also help me to develop many personal skills within a workplace environment, which isn’t available at University.

 

What do you enjoy most about your apprenticeship?

Working for a company I’ve had such a passion for since I was a kid! I already feel I am adding value to my team and being trusted with tasks that require a lot of responsibility. My team place trust in me to work independently but it's also reassuring to know that I can turn to them for support.

 

What has been your highlight so far?

A personal highlight for me is that everyone in the company is treated with the same respect regardless of role or hierarchy. This has meant I’ve settled me in so much quicker than I thought I would. Another benefit is hearing insider information about Warner Bros. films and projects before the general public.

 

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

Weigh up the positives and negatives of doing an Apprenticeship vs University and work out which form of learning suits you best.

Never think it’s too late to change your career path… If you’re not truly enjoying what you are doing then don’t be afraid to take a risk!
