Legal Apprentice Jeevan Panesar
Why did you start your apprenticeship with Coca-Cola European Partners?
The idea of working full-time in the Legal teams at a large company while earning a Law degree is what initially attracted me to the apprenticeship programme.
What has been the most memorable experience of your apprenticeship at Coca-Cola European Partners?
The most memorable experience of my apprenticeship would have to be either of the Legal all-hands meetings that I attended in Sofia and London.
What activities do you get involved with in your area of work?
I have been lucky enough to get involved in a wide range of activities within the Commercial Legal Team, such as drafting trading agreements and promotional terms and conditions. I have also been able to get involved in work with the Employment Legal Team and more recently I have moved to the Corporate Legal team which involves work around the share structure of the company and provides a wider view of CCEP across its territories.
What do you love about working here?
The people. I am always supported fully which is invaluable to me because working and pursuing a degree at the same time can be challenging at times.
What advice would you give young people about how to be successful with the application process?
My best advice for anyone would be to stay honest and genuine throughout the application process. Just present yourself as you are, it’s impossible to be the best version of yourself if you pretend to be somebody you aren’t.
If you could only drink one Coca-Cola product for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
Definitely glass bottle Coke Zero!More Experiences
