08 Mar VOICE COMMUNICATIONS CELEBRATES NATIONAL APPRENTICESHIP WEEK
Essex based PR and Digital Marketing agency, Voice Communications, is celebrating the success of young people this National Apprenticeship week (6-10 March). Since being established in 20016, Voice has successfully trained three apprentices, with two of these apprentices still working with the company. In addition to this, Voice is currently training a fourth apprentice with the industry body, PRCA.
To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, Voice team member Megan House, 20, from Colchester, has shared her apprentice experiences.
Megan joined Voice in March 2015 and began her apprenticeship to earn a Level 3 diploma in Social Media and Digital Marketing, before being offered a full-time position at Voice as an Account Executive. Recently, Megan has been promoted to Senior Account Executive and has shared her experience as well as some helpful tips and tricks.
Megan told us: “Nowadays, you can find an apprenticeship suitable for just about any career which is something that has only recently become available. In the past, apprenticeships were offered for practical jobs such as building, carpentry, hairdressing or childcare. However, there’s now apprenticeships for plenty of theory based careers including PR, Digital Marketing, Website design and more.
Adding on she said “Before beginning my career at Voice at the age of 18, I had only a basic understanding of the PR and Marketing industry however it’s fair to say that over the past two years, I’ve fallen in love with the job. It is the fast pace and the fact that every day is different that keeps me on my toes and is what I love most about my career. By studying as an apprentice, I could learn on the job whilst also earning a wage; a luxury that a lot of students do not have. My apprenticeship was also government funded so didn’t cost me a penny.”
