To kickstart our National Apprenticeship Week Q&A series, we speak with Will Matthews, our Sales Effectiveness Director, who joined our apprenticeship in 1988. Originally joining as an engineering #apprentice, Will found his passion lay in IT through the exposure he got via the programme into every part of the business. “There were (and still are) lots of opportunities in the business to move around during the apprenticeship, which helped to open my mind rather than to narrow it.” “This experience has helped me to recognise my drive and determination, which has structured and informed my life and career ever since. This is all thanks to the right balance of care, support and encouragement to learn and find new limits – even if I needed a few pushes along the way.” Find out more on his path to choosing the #apprenticeship route, his experience as an apprentice, how it has informed his career now and the advice he has for those considering an apprenticeship ➡️ http://baes.co/QXQg50Du5fU
