Subjects studied: Level 3 Marketing Assistant Apprenticeship

Former school: Helston Community College

What’s next: Spend a couple of months travelling before pursuing a career in marketing

My story:

Miles was delighted when he found out he had been given a Marketing Assistant Apprenticeship at Truro-based independent, ethical retailer, Uneeka.

Miles was able to experience most roles within the company and his manager at Uneeka was full of praise for the way he had thrown himself into his work, taking over social media, editing the website, processing orders and more.

After spending some time travelling, Miles plans to start a career in marketing and advises other young people to explore the Apprenticeship route.

Miles said: “I work with a really nice group of people and my boss teaches me a wide range of skills, from sales to networking.

“I found the Uneeka opportunity, which felt right for me with my skill set and age. It is the perfect balance between work life and college life to help me grow as a person and gain knowledge in the digital sector.

“The feeling of every day being different and being given the opportunity to do lots of new things is why I love digital marketing.

“You’re getting an income for doing what you love and learning about things you’re interested in. Apprenticeships are amazing!”
