To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we would like to shine the spotlight on our very own apprentice – Libbi. Her manager Lauren – Senior Finance Officer said “Libbi is such a great asset to CATCH – she is very hardworking and has fitted in so well despite joining us in the middle of a pandemic! Libbi is really focused on her financial training but is also learning a wide range of new skills as her positive mindset means she is happy to get involved with the rest of the team, helping out when required”.
We asked Libbi to share her experiences with us so far:
Why did you decide to take an apprenticeship?
I chose to take an apprenticeship because I find it easier to learn by physically doing tasks and there are also so many opportunities within the business to progress your personal skills as well as working towards qualifications.
Is the apprenticeship what you expected?
I have previously been an apprentice so I had an idea what it is like and how it all works, however, with this apprenticeship I am getting involved with all aspects of the business and being able to help the whole team as well as doing my own job and also studying for my qualification which wasn’t what I expected as much.
What are your hopes for the future?
My hopes for the future would be to continue with my qualifications, become a qualified accountant, and progress in the business.
Thank you Libbi!
