Rebekah Mayes 500th apprenticeWhat’s your background? 

I was employed with a company called Convergys, who do the marketing for phone company Vodafone since September 2012. I adapted well to the sales role and became very target driven. Customer service was essential in that role, which made me realise I could further my experience into a career in recruitment.

What interested you in becoming an apprentice? 

The main reason was to succeed and be good at what the role entails, while generating a revenue and developing myself along with the tools that the Miller Group have to make my job easier, giving me more time to build a relationship with clients and candidates.

What about recruitment interested you?

The work is varied and changes from day to day and even from minute to minute especially with technology, developing a relationship with people and most of all helping them find the career they are looking for.

How have you found your apprenticeship?

I have enjoyed myself and my tutor Elayne is a pleasure to work with. I look forward to her coming to see me to complete my assessments. I find I have adapted well and know more about recruitment every day as I am working in the office experiencing the recruitment role at Miller Hospitality.

What sort of goals do you have? 

My goal is to become a senior recruitment consultant and gain experience to succeed and further my career to become as successful as possible and enjoy it!
