Kyri Kokkinos - started as an apprentice in HR (recruitment), he is now a central booking administrator.
I have been employed before, for a small limited company - but working for North Middlesex Hospital, which is part of such a large organisation, has enabled me to gain much more experience in such a short space of time. The skills I have developed, have also without a doubt improved.
Working for the hospital, in the human resources department which is known to be one of the busiest, has enabled me to be involved in different things on a daily basis, which has kept the role interesting.
The fact it is such a busy department means I’ve had to communicate with other members of staff in different departments all over the hospital which has been fun and exciting. It is also a way for me to work on my professionalism as I’ve had to communicate with a variety of personalities and as every member of staff is different, this can sometimes be challenging.
I believe this programme has helped me improve my work ethic as I have had to work as a team where others have relied on me to complete tasks by a specific time and complete deadlines on a regular basis.
Although I have not yet reached the end of my apprenticeship, I feel that I have and will continue to gain more experience and confidence which will allow me to feel ready to pursue a career in a large organisation. The experience I had on my apprenticeship programme has only benefitted my future career prospects.
It will also help me gain the right qualifications that are required by future employers and will improve my CV. I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship as it allows you to gain everything you would need in order to take the next step in your future career.
