‘I have been at Fresenius Kabi for just over 2 years now; in that time I’ve completed my NVQ 2 in Performing Engineering Operations and am currently doing my NVQ3 in Electrical Engineering. There is so much room for career growth here. Once I’ve completed my apprenticeship, the company is going to sponsor me to do my HNC. I think the best thing about the apprenticeship is that you are encouraged to deal with customers and patients out in the field; it’s a big responsibility, but has helped me develop customer service skills I wouldn’t have before.
For anyone who is thinking about starting an apprenticeship, my advice would be to really apply yourself, make the most of the opportunities Fresenius Kabi offer and other social activities too, because an apprenticeship here is so much more than just going to work and going home.’
