What’s it like working at Bidwell Henderson?
Fun, exciting and rewarding.
What attracted you to the apprenticeship advert?
What I noticed first about the advert was that it was in my local area. A lot of apprenticeships that were being advertised to me were based in the cities around me and I would’ve struggled to get to and from them.

I don’t think I have one day in particular which is my favourite. But I can genuinely say that I enjoy coming to work every day.
What do you think about the job?
It is a great way for someone to start their career if they are unsure of what to do. When I finished my A levels I was unsure what to do but I know I wanted to go into a professional work environment.
What was your biggest fear before starting at Bidwell Henderson?
My biggest fear was not being professional enough especially since I had no office work before I started at Bidwell Henderson.
