Working in a business environment, it is important you are professional both in your manner and dress, especially in a business admin role, where you may be the first person a customer talks to when they walk into the company. Some offices are based in industrial sites or business parks on the outskirts of Peterborough and you will need to think about how you will travel to work and the travel costs. An Apprentice will work on average 30 hours a week, this may vary throughout the year dependent on work load.
