4 years ago I joined the team on an Apprenticeship scheme and I have never looked back!
There is no limit to what you can achieve if you take every opportunity Broadley Speaking offers.
After my apprenticeship, I followed this up with two marketing qualifications and am now in the middle of an Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Level 3 Diploma in management.
The learning is great of course but more importantly I get to put it into practice. As a BDM my objectives are to work closely with my clients to generate them multi million pound new business opportunities. It can be a challenging role at times, however, great fun and the buzz when we win a new contract for a client is amazing.
I also got to work as an Embedded Client Delivery Manager. This meant that for two days of the week I was based in the offices of our FTSE 25 client. The great thing is I got to see how one of the biggest corporations in the world work and work directly with their leadership team and their sellers. It was pretty scary first off – and I still remember walking into their offices for the very first time – but to work that closely with the client was great.
I won’t pretend that our sort of work doesn’t have its challenges but the support you get from the leadership team, combined with the internal training programmes, means that you will be prepared for the challenge.
I also get involved in the induction programmes for our new team members, so if you are successful in your application you will get the pleasure of my company from an early stage! Seriously, if you want to challenge yourself, build a career, in a stimulating and fun environment come and join the team.
