Hasn’t time flown this year? Our latest apprentice to join the team, Ben Galey, is already into his ninth month here as a valuable member of the Stancold CREST team. We had a catch-up with Ben to learn more about his time so far and what he is looking forward to in the future.
What do you enjoy most about your role so far?
As an Apprentice Coordinator, no day feels the same for me. This is one of my favourite aspects of my role – having new and exciting challenges to overcome on a daily basis really keeps me on my toes and adds a great amount of variety to what I do.
What are the most important skills you’ve learned/developed while at Stancold?
My organisation and communication skills have improved significantly since joining the team. This is such a vital part of my role so it’s been a key focus of mine since I began at Stancold. I now feel confident in assisting our projects team and ultimately ensuring their jobs run as smoothly as possible.
I’m also really happy with how my communication has developed – over the past 8 months I’ve built some great relationships with suppliers as well as our in-house installation team. This makes it that much easier for me to overcome challenges and understand the needs of those I’m working with.
What do you look forward to going forward as a member of the Stancold team?
I’m really looking forward to diversifying my skill set and evolving within my role to take on new responsibilities within the team. Stancold has definitely given me the freedom to adapt my role into different areas should I feel comfortable.
It’s fantastic to see that Ben is enjoying his time with us so far and that he is developing valuable skills that he can take forward in his career. We look forward to reporting back on his progress as well as that of our other apprentices and team members. To get in touch with our team, give us a call on 0117 316 7000 or contact us here.
