As it’s Scottish Apprenticeship Week we caught up with our very own Glasgow Guarantee Business Apprentice of the Year, Chloe Campbell to find out more about her experience at Allied Vehicles.
What is your apprenticeship in?
“I’m doing a two-year business and administration apprenticeship and I’ve just passed my first year.”
What’s involved in the apprenticeship?
“I had to complete a number of units, showing knowledge from each unit as well as evidence. My assessor came into Allied once a month. The units ranged from topics such as office equipment, using a diary system, meeting and welcoming visitors to communicating in a business environment.”
What does your apprenticeship role in HR involve?
“I support recruitment and learning and development with a wide variety of tasks. I send out invites for training, check references for new starts, put together the induction packs and book interviews alongside anything else that might come up to support the team.”
What have you enjoyed most?
“I really enjoy being in a working environment whilst I’m learning and getting a qualification. I enjoy all of it!”
What have you found most difficult?
“There are so many departments it can take quite a while to really learn the business.”
Tell us more about winning Business Apprentice of the Year…
“The event was at Glasgow City Chambers and there were loads of people there. There were six other finalists in my category and I never expected to win. It was a great night with a formal setting, with a magician too.”
What advice would you give to others considering an apprenticeship?
“Go for it! It’s great to get a qualification and work experience and earning whilst you’re learning is a bonus.”
From all at Allied – way to go Chlo!
