Reading Time: 2 Minutes
From the Transitions to Work program.

My name is Joe and my social handles are:
I work as part of the social media mangers at the Achievement Academy. I recently became full time, still working from home of course, which has given the opportunity to invest more time into more projects including renovating our websites, keep your eyes out for that! My work background is based on the apprenticeship I took in digital marketing as soon as I finished sixth form in Newcastle.
Instead of going to uni I entered the working world which I don’t regret at all, studying was never my strongest asset and I much preferred ‘doing’ in order to learn than theory. Outside of work I am involved in a football team on the weekends as both player and club secretary for whom I am a centre back for and we just won the league this season. Other than that I also help as a Leader at a youth group on the weekends and still enjoy the aspects of student life…
This is only the second role I have had and the first since passing my apprenticeship and it is a great situation as I find myself in the position of many of the individuals we are trying to support. I have experience the situation of those opting for the apprenticeship route, the ones who are job hunting and those who are just starting their career.
