About Lilley Deevey
Please summarise why you think you would make a good apprentice ambassador?
I am currently supporting the creation of the London YAAN after supporting the North West network as a board member. The YAAN network has already given me incredible opportunities and I look forward to supporting the network growth in London.
What was the apprenticeship application / recruitment process like?
My application process with AstraZeneca was really nerve-wracking but exciting! I submitted my CV and a cover letter through the government's system then a full day assessment centre. The centre looked at your attention to detail, team working skills, interest in the business and your previous work experience. It was a very long day but it gave me the chance to ask lots of questions and really get a feel for if the company was right for me!
What are you responsible for at work?
Now I've finished my apprenticeship I have gained a position at a company called Crown Worldwide designing an apprenticeship from scratch. I'm responsible for developing the apprenticeship strategy, managing the apprenticeship funding and recruiting the apprentices themselves. It is the perfect role for me because I get to give other apprentices the opportunities I've had and I can use my own apprenticeship experiences to influence the programme I'm designing.
