About Joe Powell
Please summarise why you think you would make a good apprentice ambassador?
The best advice I could give to someone considering an apprenticeship would be to do your research on the job, see the qualification and the level that you will achieve and if unsure contact the company advertising the apprenticeship. If everything checks out then there is nothing to lose.
What was the apprenticeship application / recruitment process like?
First off I had to submit my application form which consisted of both a CV and competencies aligned to the Civil Service competency framework. Then I was invited for an interview which further explored my application.
What are you responsible for at work?
My day to day responsibilities consist of working on small pieces of code within my assigned project, then after 2 weeks of working and testing the code which the team has produced we will release it to our live environment where the public can use our new features.
