Operations Support Advisor Apprentice

With Hitachi Capital since: 2020

Location: Leeds

Business unit: Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance

I decided to join Hitachi Capital as an apprentice after the opportunity was presented to me in my last year of Sixth Form.

"Initially, what caught my eye were the core values and nature of the business. They seemed to be values that matched my own, within an industry that interested me."

After meeting my mentor during the application process, I saw the opportunities Hitachi Capital UK had given her and the company values that shined through by how she treated me and everything she did to help me. She very literally ‘inspired the next’ and made me keen to start my journey at Hitachi Capital.

Since starting my role, I have enjoyed working with new people, improving my knowledge of the business, and learning the tasks involved within my job role. I feel motivated by knowing what I am doing is supporting and helping other people, whether that’s customers or other employees. Additionally, I’m excited to see how my career will develop and the opportunities I will be given in the future at Hitachi Capital once my apprenticeship programme has finished.

I would recommend an apprenticeship with Hitachi as it’s an excellent opportunity for young people like me to gain skills and work experience in a great company full of people who support and root for you to succeed.
