Jasmine Coady, Sales Administration Apprentice

I work as a Sales Administration Apprentice within the Recycling division. My main responsibility is to process sales quotations. This involves dealing with new business enquiries, answering the phone, managing sales emails and providing general admin support to the sales team. I also spend time with other departments to help me get a better understanding of their roles and how each team works together.

I like that each day is different. I get to speak to new people and learn new tasks which gives each day a lot of variety. The team I work with are supportive and are keen to help me progress.

Working alongside my day-release studying is working well. It allows me to relate my study units to my daily tasks. I have a personal development plan that was created specifically for my role and this allows me to set myself targets relating to my role and coursework.
