1. Tell us a little about yourself and your role within Axil-IS?

I began my role with Axil in July 2022, I enrolled on a digital marketing apprenticeship with QA. Before I started at Axil I didn’t have any experience in digital marketing or in the waste background but it is something that I have really enjoying doing and found a lot of interest in. My role at Axil is to support the head of marketing in various different tasks such as social post, blogs and internal Comms, etc.

2. Why did you choose an apprenticeship?

I chose an apprenticeship because I think it is a great way to learn a new job role, it helps me to get experiences in digital marketing and learn off the people around me as well as getting qualifications along the way. Being more hands on with the work that I am learning about helps me to get used to the skills and be better at them.
