I‘ve always known that going to university wasn’t for me so when I left school, I set out to pursue a career in HR where I could build my way up. When I heard about apprenticeships it just seemed like the perfect opportunity for me to be able to gain real work experience at the same time as continuing with my learning and development.
Late 2016, I came across a HR Apprenticeship position being advertised by Just Eat and I was really interested, especially when I looked into the business more and discovered what a fast growing business they are – it seemed like a really exciting time for Just Eat and I really wanted to be a part of it.
After a successful application and assessment centre, I joined the HR team at Just Eat and within a year of starting my new position, I can’t believe how much I have learnt and experienced. I have been given lots of responsibility from the start, like implementing a new global learning platform and revamping the whole onboarding and induction experience for our UK new starters.
I work in a great team that have provided me with lots of support and encouragement along the way and I am so happy with my choice to start an apprenticeship instead of going to University. The skills and knowledge I have gained whilst on the job have far exceeded my expectations and I am really excited to continue my career in HR.
