I started working for Protective Packaging at the end of January 2013. My role is IT Assistant.
Being the second Apprentice within the business, I am very honoured to have been given this opportunity as I have learnt so much within my first 3 months here, and I look forward to seeing what further knowledge can be provided.
In the first month of working with Protective Packaging I had a brief overview with each department within the company. The most interesting department for me was Hand Fabrication as I learnt all about the barrier foil laminates that we use and the styles of bags and liners which we are able to produce; this which I had absolutely no knowledge of until I started working here. I also enjoyed learning about our container desiccant, ProDriPole, in addition to the impact and damage detection products we sell, such as ShockWatch and TiltWatch.
I am very keen to be successful as an IT Assistant and I am determined to continue this role. I also attend Manchester College one day a week as part of gaining a qualification as an IT Apprentice.
