1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
my role is the main point of contact fro the entire office. i answer queries by phone / email etc. I regularly help out on shoots and productions completing various different roles. i also look after petty cash for the office and development teams, i reconcile credit cards and office float. general office admin includes filing , paper work, emails and keeping it tidy
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
i have recently learnt how to edit using both premier pro and avid, this is a skill i wanted to develop to possibly help my future career as i'm unsure which route i would like to go down. i have also developed my communication skills because i am constantly on the phones, emailing and chatting to new people.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy my apprenticeship thoroughly, as it was something i had never thought about doing and is a great way to get my foot in the door. my company is great to work for because they want to develop me to be the best i can be. i have been invited to work in Italy for a month
4. How well organised/structured is your programme?
my apprenticeship is very organised thanks to my providers. White hat have made sure i understand my apprenticeship structure and fully understand what has to be done. i have regular checks with them and my coach. i also have lessons with my coach to help me understand more about my course.
5. How much support do you receive from your employer?
the support is receive from my employer is great. i have been given compassionate leave at the very beginning of my apprenticeship. also i have a senior buddy in which i can talk to if i ever have a problem (personal or professional) the support is always there if i need it.
6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?
white hat are very good at providing support if needed. they always allow people to come into their office and complete course work if they need to, also providing breakfasts and exercise days. they are also very great at being there if i would to have a problem with my line manager.
7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?
i feel my qualification is generally knowledgeable however i don't feel it correlates very well with my career - it doesn't help me understand Television production or media knowledge. it's a business admin course which helps with 10% of my work. Television production is a weird world and i don't think this course fits well with it
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.)
every Thursday we have company drinks and snacks, this is to help the company become more social and a break from their busy schedules. at Easter and Christmas we always have mini work events. however as our office is mostly freelance we don't have set social events but separate productions do go out together for drinks
9a. Would you recommend Warner Bros. to a friend?
its a great company to be associated with as its world known and respected. it has a great support system for young apprentices. i have been selected to be a part of Warner Bros. creative talent team, this was a massive achievement as WB are very selective on who they pick
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Warner Bros.?
understand what WB is all about, its very competitive and you have to want it, but if you show your passionate and enthusiastic you will go a long way in the company. be yourself and compassionate to others. but understand it can be hard and stressful at time sbut well worth it
