It’s National Apprenticeship Week! Join us in supporting and celebrating apprenticeships!
Meet our Apprentice of the Day, Jack Sherwood.
Business Administration Apprentice Jack Sherwood has been working at Today Team Courier Services for just over a year, after finishing college with three A Levels.
Jack said: “I wasn’t sure what career pathway to take but I knew I wanted to get some real work experience, start earning money and continue my education. I applied for an apprenticeship through Warrington & Vale Royal College and they secured me an interview with Today Team. It’s a fantastic company to work for, they really invest in their staff.”
Today Team’s Business & Finance Manager, Dawn Bostock, commented: “As a company we are very passionate about our company values and wanted to recruit an ambitious young person who embodied these values. Jack is a real asset to the team. His knowledge and confidence has significantly improved since he started with us.”
Since working as an apprentice for Today Team, Jack’s highlight has been his attendance at a Business Network International meeting with his Managing Director, and pitching to over 60 business owners.
“If you’re unsure about what to do when you finish school or college, do an apprenticeship,” said Jack. “Unlike university, you’re not becoming tied to student loans or narrowing your options. I’m currently studying for my Business Administration Level 3 but I’ve also been given the opportunity to work closely within Today Team’s accounts department, which has made me want to pursue my AAT accounting qualification at college. I hope that’ll be my next step.”
