Ellie Bleakley – Business Admin Apprentice

Ellie is a business admin apprentice at Sapphire: “I now have a qualification for life which will help me throughout my career.”

What is your job title?

How has the apprenticeship impacted on you?

The apprenticeship has taught me a lot about the different sides to a business, beyond what employees get taught, so has helped me to understand other organisations and how they work, as well as Sapphire.

How will the apprenticeship training continue to impact on you in the future?

I now have a qualification for life which will help me throughout my career.

How has the apprenticeship impacted on your organisation?

The course has made me think on ways to improve Sapphire’s processes and has allowed me to give my input in process changes and better ways of working.

How has Damar’s approach to training contributed to the impact of the apprenticeship on you and your organisation?

Damar was very supportive throughout my apprenticeship and, without their support, I would have struggled to achieve the grade I did.

Why did you decide to do an apprenticeship?

I wanted to learn on the job whilst making money.

What activities do you do in your day-to-day role?

I make sure contractors are set up for payroll and make sure they have the correct right to work documents.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

The responsibilities I have and the environment I work in.

What are your future career plans?

I would like to progress in the current job I am in and hopefully one day have a business of my own.
