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


As a whole, I work closely with my team to take care of the salaries and benefits that employees within the company receive. I am able to communicate with people within the business, as well as outside of the business on a regular basis. Daily tasks can include answering employee queries, gathering data, and providing salary ranges for various roles.

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


Whilst being at Warner Bros., I feel that I have improved on my communication skills, both written and verbal, as well as learnt how to prioritise tasks during busy periods. This has been, and will always be, a key skill in the place of work. I also feel that I have developed my ability to ask questions to further my understanding and knowledge, without fear that I am asking a silly question - I have learnt that no question is a silly question!

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I am thoroughly enjoying my time on this programme. The people within the company are lovely to work with, they are very supportive and always happy to help. I am able to integrate with other apprentices throughout the year, and the atmosphere in general is a really great place to work in.

4. How well organised/structured is your programme?


It is a very organised programme. I have been told there will be regular visits from the apprenticeship provider and I am able to allocate certain hours/days in the week to focus on the work for the qualification. Having a structure works really well and allows me to be able to set out my deadlines and targets well.

5. How much support do you receive from your employer?


I receive a lot of support from my employer which is really great. They are always happy to help both with work and qualification material. I am able to go on training days and courses which provide me with better understanding and help a great deal. I feel very confident that the support I receive will help me thrive in this apprenticeship.

6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?


I have only just begun my qualification, so I have only had one visit at this moment in time. On my induction, my tutor provided me lots of beneficial information and answered all the questions I had. It was made clear that I am more than welcome to ask for help and project my thoughts if I need to.

7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?


I think that the qualification will help me to perform well in my role, as the modules/units are very relevant throughout. It will allow to go into different situations/projects with more than one point of view as I am able to explore options/solutions thorough the qualification. I think it will also allow me to expand my knowledge as I learn more through the qualification.

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.)


Yes, there are often different events being help, both some sporting to networking. They have talks presented by different speakers, charity events and many more. There are multiple opportunities to get involved with different things depending on what you enjoy, there is something for everyone. There are also a number of events which allow you to network and get to know people across the company.

9a. Would you recommend Warner Bros. to a friend?


9b. Why?

It is a great company to work for and the apprenticeship programme is very supportive and well established. I haven't been here long but I have already learnt so much. It's great that whilst enjoying my job, I am also able to work towards a qualification. I didn't expect to have such responsibility at this stage, but I am grateful for this as it has taught me a lot. There are so many great opportunities here on a regular basis, that whilst developing my knowledge and career, I am also developing as an individual.
