9/10

Accenture provides many benefits. A very good one being that every home match newcastle has there is a draw to win free tickets to sit in either the moncur suite which you get a free meal and cheese board at half time and the second is the gallowgate club which has amazing seats. I have fortunately won 3 tickets so far and enjoyed everyone of them.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?

8/10

I think the Apprenticeship salary is extremely good baring in mind what other companies give. This is one thing that spurs me on to try and do well within the company knowing that I will one day I will hopefully end up on better money due to the amount of opportunities that arise to get yourself moving up the ladder system.
I travel by car everyday and the salary I get is more then enough to cover the costs of traveling by car.

9/10

There are a lot of opportunities within Service Management to go on social events. We have just been Ice Skating for a team night out which was a lot of fun. There are also other events held where we will go on a night out and all drinks will be subsidized by the team.
