Meet Sophie

A big believer that ‘education is really important no matter what age you are’, Sophie wanted to work for a company where she could support people on their learning journey. As a Sales Support Coordinator, Sophie is able to support this by setting up meetings for our Regional Apprenticeship Trainers to meet with learners and employer partners to coordinate their sign-up to an apprenticeship programme. Given a choice of who to invite to dinner, Sophie would make sure she set up a date with David Beckham, David Attenborough, Vivienne Westwood and the Queen.

I feel that my role really makes a difference to learners and apprenticeship trainers

I think education is really important no matter what age you are and loved the idea of supporting people on their learning journey.

The team are really great. Everyone gels together and this contributes towards an upbeat working environment.

On a typical day I speak with employer partners, learners and their trainers and support booking their initial sign up appointment/s.

At the moment I am at the beginning of my Lifetime journey but I hope to progress within the company.

Achieving great working relationships with colleagues and learners.

I feel that my role really makes a difference to learners and apprenticeship trainers. It ensures everything is arranged and prepared for trainers to visit the learner and the employer partner.

The right behaviors and a can do attitude.

There is a real team ethos. Team members work together to help each other and provide each other with support throughout the day.
