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

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have developed many skills during my apprenticeship. I have completed the ITIL foundation qualification, as well as developing personal skills such as teamwork, management and time-keeping.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy the team I work with, and the work I complete. There is also a nice apprentice community in our office which is great.
4. How valued do you feel by Unilever?
Unilever are very enthusiastic about apprenticeships. I have lots of support from my line manager, as well as the wider community within Unilever, other teams and employees.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme is well organised and there is plenty of training and support available for all apprentices. When you start there is an induction and you are always offered support from the apprentice delivery team if needed.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
Our training provider visits on a monthly basis, offering support and guidance. We discuss progress and future plans for completing our training. Other than this, if we ever need help we can always contact our assessor who will reply quickly.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
My line manager is very supportive. We have weekly discussions in relation to my work and qualifications to ensure I am up to date and have the correct amount of work to do. Our mentor is also very supportive and it is great to be confident and have someone to speak to if we do have any issues.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
For an apprenticeship we are on a great starting wage. All my bills are covered and I still have a fair amount of disposable income every month.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are plenty of opportunities outside of work. Unilever have lots of company events and activities for us to get involved with. There is a close connection with the local community in our office which is great.
