Real life stories:
Georgie Horgan, Finance Apprentice

Georgie Horgan 200I studied Biology, Chemistry and Maths at Cirencester College but realised this wasn't really what I wanted to do.

When I discovered the opportunity to study an Association of Accounting Technician (AAT) course while working at the Great Western Hospital, I decided to switch to becoming an apprentice.

I have worked in the Finance department since January 2016, where I help support assistant management accountants in preparing the month end tasks.

This includes raising invoices, dealing with credit requests, running reports, answering calls and emails, filing, minute taking and updating organisational charts and telephone lists.

The aspect of this role that I enjoy the most is the team's atmosphere; I find it incredibly supportive and encouraging.

Little did I know how much I would get out of being an apprentice, guiding me in the right direction of my chosen career as well as providing me with experience within a functioning workplace.

Meeting some motivating and knowledgeable people makes me certain that this style of work is the right place for me.

I would recommend an apprenticeship to anyone, they offer valuable experience, an insight to a working environment and you can have a recognised qualification afterwards.
