LDN Apprenticeships meet with you once per month in addition to you attending college ensuring the feeling that you are well looked after as your course progresses.

My business administration qualification has enables me to learn skills and gain knowledge that direct influences my work at WB. This course covers various topics within business and develops my understanding of how this can be applied to both my job and the industry as a whole. The level 4 qualification is challenging but is learn how it relates to what you do on a daily basis.
8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)
There are some sporting events that you can get involved in if you choose at WB while there are also regular team or companywide programs that you can sign up for such as regular screenings of the latest films. Some employees are able to attend premieres for Wb films which are exciting events to be a part of.

You reap the rewards of your hard work and therefore you feel that you are working in a culture that makes working fun. The tasks I am set to complete are not always the most exciting but the positives defiantly outweighs the negatives.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Warner Bros.?
I would apply to Warner Bros with a strong idea that you would like to work in the industry. If you know what areas, you would be best suited or are most interested in then this would be advantageous. The roles for apprentices and interns are of a similar nature but give you the platform to develop on to something new in the future.
