"The opportunity to join PETA has been great for me and I look forward to developing my career and skills along the way."
What led you to work for PETA?
After finishing A Levels in Accounting and Business, I wasn’t entirely sure what career route to take. With coronavirus and the lockdowns made it difficult for me to explore any opportunities. I then went on the Kickstart scheme and applied for a job here at PETA.
The opportunity to join PETA has been great for me and I look forward to developing my career and skills along the way.
What is your role at PETA and what drives you to what you do?
My role here at PETA is organising and arranging all our school engagement. I ensure that we are signed up to various career fairs and apprenticeship evenings in the local schools. I also help run some of our events – one being the Apprentice V’s Dragons Den Competition. My passion and drive in my role are to make sure we reach out to as many young people and explain the benefits and opportunities an apprenticeship can offer. This is because I know what it is like to be in their shoes and not know what to do when you leave school.
What knowledge or experience do you draw upon for your role?
Completing my A level business helped me to gain an insight to how a business runs and its daily activities. No day is ever the same.
How do you approach your role on a day-to-day basis? What skills are required?
I like to make sure I prioritise my tasks daily and make sure I have a clear plan of what I would like to undertake and achieve by the end of the day.
What are you passionate about outside of work?
I like to spend time with my friends and family. On the weekends I like to go on days out and walk my dogs.
What are your personal values, and what is important to you?
I enjoy being a part of a team and offering help and assistance to my colleagues. Together everyone achieves more!
