Layla Harrison at workI registered my details on the apprenticeship website and Derby College contacted me to see if I was interested in this job. It's really varied and interesting and I am already getting involved in all sorts of areas including website competitor analysis and client liaison. It can be difficult to find an apprenticeship so I consider myself extremely lucky to have got this position and I am keen to learn as much as I can.
