Chloe Millington - Craft Apprentice

Year Started: 2017

"Ricoh has been a great company to work for during my apprenticeship. They have supported me in all aspects; whether it be personal issues, support with developing my skills and pushing me to achieve more than I ever imagined! During my apprenticeship I had the opportunity to compete in WorldSkills UK. This is a national competition which showcases young people’s skill sets in all industries. This involved time away from the workplace and required additional support which Ricoh was happy to provide. Everyone at Ricoh has been so warm and friendly, no question or idea is stupid. Any problem you come across (personal or business) they support you – its amazing to know your employer is so supportive."

James Grainger - Commercial Apprentice

Year Started: 2019

“The Commercial apprenticeship has offered me a great opportunity to grow as an individual and the skills provided are transferrable to any role within the organisation. Experiencing various processes within different departments has given me a broad understanding of the business and its aims. The alignment of work with college study provided a true insight and a pragmatic explanation of the theory that you learn in the classroom (something that many different routes and career paths cannot provide). The Level 3 Business Administration course has enabled me to develop skills within administrative roles, whilst the HNC has given me the opportunity to be creative and expressive within my assignments. If you want to learn and grow in an organisation that has a strong culture and consistently seeks new business opportunities, I would highly recommend the Commercial apprenticeship at Ricoh.”
