At Mercedes-Benz South West, we believe it is important to support those in the early stages of their careers. To celebrate National Apprenticeships Week 2021 we are shining a light on the individuals currently completing their training with us in a variety of roles across the business. Read on and watch our video to learn more about life as an apprentice at Mercedes-Benz South West.
Josh – Mechanic Apprentice
Being able to work alongside learning was a key factor in Josh’s decision to go down the apprenticeship route. Being a practical person, the idea of sitting in a classroom to study wasn’t appealing. Now six months into his apprenticeship with Mercedes-Benz South West, Josh has worked on some big mechanical jobs and is continuing to build his skills with the support of the team around him.
Amber – Marketing Apprentice
Amber was working full time after leaving college unsure what she wanted to do before she joined Mercedes-Benz South West as a Marketing Apprentice. Although slightly older than what you would expect a typical apprentice to be, she didn’t let that stop her and her apprenticeship has given her a great leg up in her marketing career. She now runs the social media accounts as well as supporting the rest of the marketing department whilst continuing to develop her skills.
