I learn something every day without even realising it, whether it’s a new skill, a better understanding of the industry or personal development through work. I'm doing a level 3 with the apprenticeship but there are opportunity to do additional courses alongside this. I've learnt a lot about the industry through doing this.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Premier Foods?

Don’t not get put off by not knowing anything about the food industry as it soon becomes clear! If there is ever anything you do not understand I can ask anyone, and they explain what they are doing and how their role fits in with the bigger picture. A willingness to learn is worth more than previous knowledge in my experience
