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

8/10

My job title is Aftersales Product & Pricing Coordinator. My daily tasks involve, running various reports to find out information asked for by my line manager, placing orders, creating catalogs and helping launch new products to the market, including many, many more smaller tasks. Let's just say you don't get bored!

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

10/10

I had a basic understanding of using Microsoft Excel but after being here I have learnt how to do things that I didn't even know were possible in a spreadsheet. My communication skills are always growing and my all round ICT skills have improved massively.

4. How valued do you feel by PSA Group?

10/10

I enjoy the programme massively. I believe it is such a great alternative to going to university or straight into work. It gives you the chance learn an industry, in depth, whilst working for them and earning a wage. There is so much opportunity at Vauxhall, not everything is office based and if there is anything you want to get involved in then all you have to do is ask.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

9/10

I think you are very valued by the organisation here. Reason I believe this is because you are giving tasks that normal employees get. People have the idea that the apprentices get given the 'baby' tasks, such as photocopying or fetching tea. At Vauxhall this isn't the case. You are looked at as an employee by your managers and are given big responsibilities and trusted when you complete the work.

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

8/10

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

10/10

You get a lot of support from the employer when you need it. They are always there to help if you contact by email or phone. They sort of take a back seat approach and let you get on with things. Which I think is very good, it takes you out of the mindset that you have when your at school. It makes you more independent and lets you make your own decisions. They will always be there for you though if you encounter any problems.

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

9/10

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

9/10

9. Would you recommend PSA Group to a friend?

Yes

9b. Why?

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to PSA Group?

This is a great opportunity for anyone that wants a business and admin apprenticeship in this industry. There is a lot of chances to get a feel of most departments and you will never get bored! You are looked at as a normal employee.
