Hardware distributor Carl F Groupco, which has an established track record for staff training and development, has recruited Oliver (Ollie) Cullen as a Sales Office apprentice. Ollie, who is currently studying for a level 2 diploma in Business Administration, combines his work at Carl F Groupco with attendance at college one day a week.
Commenting on the opportunity that has been provided by Carl F Groupco, Ollie said:
“The post is helping me significantly with my studies as it enables me to put business theory into a practical context. It is my first office based role but I have overcome my apprehensions quickly because the team at Carl F Groupco is very supportive.
“I am enjoying learning product information and getting experience from a hands-on perspective of office tasks: I now understand that communication is key in the business world.”
Ollie Cullen is Carl F Groupco’s first apprentice. He supports Carl F Groupco’s internal sales team at the company’s UK distribution and administration centre in Peterborough.
