We had the pleasure of hearing back from one of our latest apprentices we’ve placed, Vitor! See what he had to say.
I came to England from Portugal about 4 months ago and I was looking for a job, I went to Mygo in Ipswich, then I went to Papworth in a desperate search for some work. Then on the Wednesday I found Rita Fisher from Opportunities Workshop at the Mygo centre talking about apprenticeships. After that I started attending Opportunities Workshop to meet with Rita to discuss apprenticeship opportunities.
I started getting interviews from Opportunities Workshop, Rita got me 5 interviews to date and one of those interviews got me a job. Right now I’m working thanks to Rita at Opportunities Workshop, I would recommend her to any young person looking for apprenticeship opportunities. She never gives up and she always has something prepared for you. She is a nice lady and super pleasant to speak to.
Now I am in work and earning money, I am so much happier! Also, I am so pleased I got the apprenticeship as it means I am learning and picking up new skills at the same time.
I am really excited for what the future has in store for me and where my apprenticeship can take me. I would highly recommend Opportunities Workshop to anyone looking to find an apprenticeship. I give Opportunities Workshop 5 out of 5 stars!
