So what will life be like as an apprentice? Ask one. Listen to the people whose footsteps you could follow in.
For me the apprenticeship combines the best of both worlds. Learning and training in the field that I’m really passionate about, hand in hand with real world work experience. You’re putting new skills into action as soon as you learn them.
Could there have been a better way to learn as much as I have about the media industry? I was working on key international clients while completing my apprenticeship and gaining the skills that have laid the foundations for my career.
Today I’m part of a dynamic and diverse team at a top agency, working with global brands like Kellogg’s. My apprenticeship has been key. It’s helped me to develop a skill set that spans strategic thinking, creative development and project implementation in an industry that I love.
My apprenticeship really kickstarted my career in advertising. Straightaway I was learning ‘on the job’ and working on a blue-chip brand like Argos. Now I’m trusted to lead conversations with clients and project manage ad campaigns from start to finish.
There’s no better way to get into the business. From the very beginning I was working with big clients like BMW and MGA. My apprenticeship has given me the skills to be part of a great agency team and plan awesome media campaigns for my clients.
