See what Ad Hoc Bristol’s first ever apprentice has to say about her experience with Ad Hoc so far!

We spoke to Bristol’s newest recruit, Kelly Smith, to see how she’s settling into the Ad Hoc way of life…

 

Why did you choose Ad Hoc?

After I finished studying Art at college, I decided to apply for Ad Hoc’s apprenticeship. Lots of my friends had started apprenticeships after college and I was told how supportive and progressive they were, and saw the advert on Indeed so thought I would apply.

 

What sort of tasks are you doing now?

I’ve been here for 3 weeks now, and I’m helping to support team by assisting projects, answering the phones and emails and updating various systems.

 

How are you settling in?

I’m really enjoying it! 100% enjoying it! The team are really easy to get along with. I’m getting a lot out of it.

 

What are your career aspirations?

My apprenticeship lasts for one year, and I am hoping to go further and to gain a further position at the end of my apprenticeship. It would be great to become a regional manager one day!

 

What do you think about Guardianship?

Well, before I started my apprenticeship I hadn’t heard of it, but now I’m learning about it I think it’s such a good idea!

 

What is your favourite thing about working at Ad Hoc?

I really like that you end up building relationships with the Guardians and the people you work with. I’ve met some really interesting, creative people- one Guardian makes his own duvets!
