Working with one of the UK’s largest government organisations at the age of 20
I have learnt more in the last couple of years at Invotra while on my apprenticeship, than I feel I did in my entire time at school / college. Those earlier years in life teach you what you need to know to pass that specific exam or piece of coursework…work teaches you so much more than that – it teaches you real life.
I started at Invotra back in 2013, I came straight from college and honestly had no idea what I wanted to do with my life – along with everyone else my age. Most of my friends decided to go straight onto uni – however I didn’t feel this was right for me. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to study and I couldn’t justify spending that amount of money and still not know where it would get me afterwards.
I had done a weeks work experience with Invotra and this helped me get my foot in the door 5 months later. I joined Invotra (as an apprentice) and started out in a sales role, I didn’t know if it was right for me either. It scared me how everyone around me seemed to know exactly who and where they wanted to be and I was still so confused by everything.
After 7 months I had decided sales wasn’t quite right for me, I felt I could offer so much more placed in a different role. Instead of being told to leave at this point, I was given the chance to progress my learning and development in a project management role – It’s not every day you get offered opportunities like this.
