1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

9/10

I maintain corporate enquires which is external e-mails. I sieve through and delete or direct to the correct people. There is a lot of spread sheet work and cleansing/maintaining databases. I call seven senior members of staff monthly to retrieve updates on all of our sites and get information. I use this information and upload it into an internal software in a professional style so it can be overlooked by the Leadership team.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

10/10

My communication skills have definitely developed and I.T skills have grown massively.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

8/10

I do really enjoy my apprenticeship, however it is now coming to an end so it is getting a little repetitive with some tasks I have to complete.

4. How valued do you feel by Aramark?

7/10

By some colleagues, I feel very recognised and valued. However, others don't take much notice.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

8/10

My program is very structured as my calendar is full of times and dates when tasks should be worked on and completed. I am never sat around doing nothing.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?

8/10

At the start I received a lot. But I don't need any more as I am now trained and able to complete everything.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?

9/10

I receive a lot of help and support from my line manager. Many others will also support me and help me through challenges and hard situations.

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

6/10

I'm only 16 so its good money I guess. It would be a lot easier and better if the wage was increased.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

10/10

There are many opportunities outside of work as this apprenticeship has definitely set me up for life!

9a. Would you recommend Aramark to a friend? *

Yes

9b. Why? *

Great career start. Earning money and get a qualification.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Aramark? *

I would advise others about the amount of college work there is to do. I have nearly finished a business administration apprenticeship and there was lots of work and units that I had to complete in order to finish my apprenticeship. Just be prepared for the course/college work.
