Business Admin Apprentice

Hera is our new Business Admin Apprentice joining Professional Academy in June 2019. She decided to undertake a Business Administration programme having started off her career by going to the University of Essex. Deciding that University was not for her, and that her interests lay more into the commercial world of business, she chose Professional Academy as her preferred company allowing her to learn on the job and a chance to learn a wide variety of new skills.

Working closely with Kamilla, the Operations Director, she jumped straight into the CIM July Board submissions immediately proving herself a massive asset to the administration and operations team. Within her first month she has covered student support, Microsoft Forms, awarding body registrations, exam bookings, hotel bookings and Excel spreadsheets, she has quickly established herself as a valuable member of the team.

Hera lives in a small village on the outskirts of Cambridge with her family, 2 dogs, a cat and several chickens and ducks. She enjoys ((BOUNCE)) classes, Geo-caching, walking and cooking.

Alongside side her apprenticeship, Hera is currently undertaking her Guiding Leadership Qualification having previously been a qualified Young Leader. She works a 20-strong Guiding unit and is using her own experiences to encourage young people to develop themselves.

And at the end of a busy day in the office (or a noisy Guide meeting), she loves sampling new and interesting flavours of gin… Especially when the weather is warm.
