Name Nicole Melia
Company BT
Location Manchester
Last Known Job Role  BT Apprentice
Movement To Work Programme 2016

The programme really helped build my confidence and skills. It gave me experience in a full time work environment. Traveling to and from the office every day was something that took a bit of getting used to.

Nicole fully participated in her placement and had the opportunity to have work experience in Openreach, BT Fleet, Wholesale and Venture and volunteered at Salford Food bank as a BT volunteer. Nicole’s experience included fundraising and organising the event at the food bank.

Nicole successfully completed her placement with us and the following week was invited to an apprenticeship assessment centre. Nicole was successful at interview and started with BT in November 2016 as a full time Advanced Finance apprentice with our Stockport Team.

Nicole said: “The programme really helped build my confidence and skills. It gave me experience in a full time work environment. Traveling to and from the office every day was something that took a bit of getting used to.

During my work experience I was involved in organising charity events for the local food bank and visited the BT Fleet team. These experiences definitely helped me get through the interview, and skills I have used since becoming a full time Advanced Finance Apprentice. The support from the onsite coaches was great, they helped me with interview preparation and my CV. I was struggling to nail my CV and with Michelle’s support I got it right! The BT team were brilliant and always there to help”
