“I would recommend SITU to anyone”
Peter Leyman became a member of the SITU team in January 2018, taking on the role of a Business and Finance Admin Apprentice. He has since adopted the role of a full-time Credit Controller, and when asked about his SITU journey, he said “Working at SITU has changed my life, career and aspirations for the better.”
After taking a look at our SITU's Careers page, Peter knew there were great opportunities available to him, where he could gain valuable experience and develop his skills. “When I initially browsed their website, I could see how much the employees were valued and, as a result, I applied and have never looked back!”
Despite having limited knowledge of the industry at 20 years old, with the help and support of his peers, Peter was able to hit the targets and objectives he was set and had set for himself.
“I have had full support from each individual here to advance my knowledge and skills to be able to perform successfully”.
As Peter gained more experience, he found that he was given more responsibility on a regular basis, which therefore allowed him to grow into the role more and more as each day passed. He is now a greatly valued member of the team who continues to still learn every day about the importance of his role and the industry.
Peter also deems the apprenticeship scheme at SITU to be a vital stepping stone in the process of progressing to a professional position.
“I would recommend SITU to anyone who wants to reach their ambitions and aspirations to the fullest. SITU will give them the tools to do so like they have and continue to do so with me.”
"SITU has been life-changing for me"
Dani Richards joined the SITU team as a Finance and Business Admin Apprentice in April 2017. When asked about her experience at SITU, she states “this apprenticeship programme helped me to find my career path."
”SITU has been life-changing for me; I took this role when I was 19 years old. I didn’t have any experience or any idea of what I wanted to do. I knew I would be happy here at SITU from the second I walked in. Without SITU I believe I would have never found my passion for finance and for that I am forever grateful.”
After trying a few different roles and learning more about what she enjoyed doing, Dani decided to focus on finance rather than admin duties. She feels the past year was challenging yet rewarding, pushing her to exceed her own expectations.
“Since beginning my apprenticeship, I have set myself more and more targets, and I have achieved things I never thought I could, and this is down to my colleagues and SITU."
"SITU has given me the stepping stones to reach my aims and aspirations; they listen to whatever I have to say and take on board whatever they can to help. They offer training courses to each individual to help them learn and excel within their roles.”
Dani believes choosing SITU for the apprenticeship program is incredibly beneficial as it provides young people with support and training essential for stepping into a professional role.
“There are so many benefits to being part of the SITU team, and everyone helps one another to reach their full potential. I have never experienced such a welcoming group of colleagues and am so proud to say that I am now a part of this team.”
