My development during the graduate programme
At the start of the graduate programme, I went through a thorough induction process which was extremely insightful as it provided me the opportunity to learn more about how the company operates, how the extensive range of products are made and even meet some of our customers.
The best part about apetito is that the customer is always at the heart of everything we do. Within manufacturing the focus is to produce meals that not only taste and look excellent but are also affordable. From the very first day I have had the opportunity to work on multiple and really impactful projects that are aimed at improving Process Efficiency, Product Quality and Health and Safety. For many of these projects, I was given full ownership right from the start, which to me demonstrates that the company is placing a lot of trust in young graduates. To be able to deliver on these projects the level of support and regular feedback I received from both the senior management and other team members has been phenomenal. This has really helped me to not only make a real contribution, but also develop valuable skills such as people management and grow in confidence.
