‘After working as an Apprentice for 12 months, I applied for a job within the Octavia Foundation for an Executive Assistant to the Director. I got the job and it was a great experience to expand my skill set and knowledge of the Foundation and work in a different area to my apprenticeship.'
'18 months later, I applied to become a Fundraising and Marketing Assistant and I got it! Since my apprenticeship, I have grown as a person, my confidence is through the roof and I have an amazing team that has supported me all the way. Being here has given me the opportunity to grow – I couldn’t be happier.’
