Meet the Apprentices: Katie Allen

‘I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in – everyone has made me so welcome’

 

Name: Katie Allen

Age: 17

From: East Hull

Qualification: Level 3 Business Administrator Apprenticeship, completed over 18 months.

 

Katie said: “Before I joined Willerby, I went to Hull College and was then medically discharged from my phase one Army training because I broke my leg, so I was looking for a new opportunity.

 

“I contacted Hull Business Training Centre and this apprenticeship at Willerby was the best one for me. It’s a brilliant company and I have friends and cousins who’ve worked here for a long time, so I knew about the business and its history.

 

“I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in and gaining my qualification. My role will initially cover HR, payroll and health and safety.

 

“I’ll complete training online every Wednesday morning and the rest of the time will be spent learning on the job. Everyone is really nice and they’ve made me so welcome.”
