Jack’s Story

Jack started out on an Administration Apprenticeship with us when he was 16, he has progressed within the business and is now a Business Development Consultant for our DBS Checking division.

 What made you decide to enter into an apprenticeship?
“I wanted to earn my own money whilst gaining a qualification.”

 What did you enjoy the most about being a Cummins Mellor Apprentice?
“Being independent for the first time in my life and having experience under my belt, also having my own money to spend on what I want was a major plus.”

 Are there any disadvantages to being an Apprentice?
“It took me a while to get used to not having any school holidays, but that’s part of  becoming an adult I guess!”

 What advice would you give to somebody considering an apprenticeship?
“Do it! The majority of my friends didn’t go into apprenticeships but after a few months of  college they wish they did because they never have any money to do anything at the  weekend!”



apprenticeship How did you hear about Apprenticeships?
“My Dad went into one when he left school and so did one of my sisters.”

 Do you know anybody else who was an Apprentice at the same time as you? How did  their experience differ to yours?
 “Yes, a friend of mine is doing one at the moment, he hasn’t really been given any  opportunities to progress within the company.”
