Work experience at our Blyth branch

We had a helping hand last week from Liam who was carrying out his work experience in our Blyth branch. Throughout his week of working in branch he was able to see and understand all aspects of day to day life working in a Builders Merchant. We caught up with him to find out what he thought about his week with us.

Why did you want to do your work experience at a Builders Merchant?

I wanted to do work experience here because I wanted to try something new and see what is was like.

What have you enjoyed the most?

I have enjoyed serving customers and filling orders in and doing some invoices.

What is one thing you will take away from the experience?

I will take away some life experience and how it feels to help people and working.

What would be your perfect job?

My perfect job would be working Monday to Friday working in my home.

Almost a quarter of our workforce either are, or have been, apprentices or trainees and we currently employ 15 Apprentices/Trainees. That statistic includes 2 of our Senior Managers who joined us as apprentices when they left school. After the stand out performance during the week of his work experience, could we be seeing Liam back working in our Blyth branch to begin his career? We hope so!
