Case Study

Rebecca Lindsay at L'Oreal

My job role at L'Oreal involves working on the background of the order systems. Since starting my IT Apprenticeship here, I have constantly been learning new skills which have helped me take on more responsibilities. I thought an Apprenticeship would be good for me to try something new, I can learn on the job and gain work experience. I would definitely recommend it as i am very happy in mine.
