McKeever Group has encouraged me to undertake a Level 2 and Level 3 Apprenticeship, through which I was able to take the position of Supervisor. They recently encouraged me to undertake the HLA to advance further.
My typical day can involve anything from cleaning, staff training, making sure all guests are satisfied and even making and tasting cocktails! The range changes every day with no two days being the same. Resuming post-COVID certainly keeps un on our toes as we adapt.
The sense of achievement and pride and making a customer’s day by exceeding expectations has to be the most rewarding – nothing beats being a smile to people. I believe that my job prospects are great – we are getting better and going further to meet and exceed customers expectations whilst the customers themselves are more willing to travel for options.
For anyone considering an apprenticeship, I’d say go for it! Even if you’re not sure of your final destination, the experience and skills you learn will set up in any industry.
