My first month as an apprentice at Smart Assessor

Wednesday March 8, 2017 at 10:49am

I left school in September 2014 and went on to study Art & Design at college whilst working part time at as a waiter. Spending my time there, I felt like it wasn’t taking me anywhere or helping me pursue my ambitions and goals, therefore I decided to do an apprenticeship in business admin.

I approached my local training provider where I was given the option of 3 different companies to apply for, I applied for the position at Smart Assessor and started 3 weeks later.

I’ve been doing an apprenticeship with Smart Assessor for a month now. I went into this role not having any experience at all in business admin, but felt it was time that I got myself out there and did something productive and something that would help me pursue my goals for the future. In the month that I have been working for Smart Assessor, I have not only learnt basic office duties, such as franking, scanning, mail merging etc but also learnt more within the accounts department with inserting invoices into the software correctly, working more on excel and becoming confident on the telephone.  I feel that doing these tasks has helped me progress my knowledge within understanding business admin roles.

Within a week at Smart Assessor, there were 2800 invitations to be sent out for an event that Smart Assessor were hosting, I was handed two boxes of envelopes, thousands of labels and the personalised invitations which all had a deadline to be sent out.  On my first day, I watched a Smart Assessor demo, which I had never done in my life. I felt like it was a good experience and it made me understand what other people who work alongside me do in their jobs. 

Within my second week I was dealing with invoices and how to insert them on to the system, I made a few mistakes at the start but I feel like I soon got the hang of it. I then had to chase up outstanding invoices which was the first call I made whilst working at Smart Assessor.

I have enjoyed the time that I have spent doing an apprenticeship with Smart Assessor, I feel like I am learning something new every day. I’m feeling more comfortable within the tasks that I am given to do as I now have more knowledge than I did a month ago, and I look forward to learning a lot more in the year to come.

Doing an apprenticeship is beneficial not only do you learn and gain experience but you also earn at the same time. 

I looking forward to learning more and challenging myself within my role and attending my first conference with Smart Assessor.
