Meet Emma Storey, HR & Business Support Manager, B-Skill
Why did you decide to become an Apprentice?
What did you find most challenging and rewarding?
The most rewarding part of my Apprenticeship was when I completed my first year and B-Skill asked me to be a permanent member of staff… All my hard work had really paid off!
What happened after completing your Apprenticeship? What were your next steps?
In respect of internal promotions within the organisation I have successfully progressed up the career ladder. I started as an Business Administration Apprentice before receiving my first promotion to HR & Quality Assistant then to HR Officer. From here, I moved on to HR Specialist and in January 2015, I was promoted to HR Manager. This was a huge achievement for me as I was the youngest manager to sit on the Management Team. This demonstrated the belief and confidence that B-Skill had in me and my ability.
My role has recently changed and I am now HR & Business Support Manager. I now have responsibility of managing a team of people which I am really enjoying. I have always had supportive managers who have supported me through my career progression and I have always wanted to do the same for others.
