What a journey it’s been so far! It all started back in October 2013 when I was completing work experience in the Eastwood branch. I went into it with a can do attitude, determined to show the manager I was worth a position. Within a week of being in store I was offered a retail apprenticeship. I didn’t even have to think about the offer I just grabbed the opportunity with both hands! My apprenticeship helped me progress within the business, as it gave me the knowledge I needed in order to feel confident enough to apply for the other positions I have since applied for. Working full time also gave me chance to pick up on the management’s routines, which also helped me when I stepped up.
Just over a year later I applied for the supervisor position which came up in store, to be told I had got the job I was over the moon! In June 2016 I earned another promotion, moving from the Eastwood store to Mansfield as Assistant Manager. It’s a challenge moving from a small shop taking 15k a week to a bigger shop taking 50k a week, but it’s a challenge I’m relishing!
I couldn’t have got to where I am now though without the help and support I have received from all of the people I have worked with past and present. I would strongly recommend an apprenticeship with Savers, as the company likes to promote from within and the knowledge that you get from the course really does help you. Here’s to many more happy years with Savers!More Experiences
