My first month as a business administration apprentice

Neal - Business Administration Apprentice

Ever wondered what it’s like to be a business administration apprentice on our finance team?

Have a read below of how Neal, one of our business administration apprentices, has found his first month as part of the finance team at Ashbourne Day Nurseries.

Name: Neal

Role: Business Administration Apprentice – Finance Team

My time at Ashbourne Day Nurseries so far has been amazing. I have learnt a lot in my first month including allocating payments to different accounts, accessing the banking system, and inputting the information into Microsoft Excel.

I have also recently been given access to QuickBooks which I am looking forward to learning more about and getting stuck into as I feel like this will broaden my knowledge of finance as a whole.

One of my favourite tasks is going into the banking system and seeing how all the payments come in and I will soon be learning about where outgoing payments are sent.

I am looking forward to learning about payroll and the payment side of the finance team. I also cannot wait to start getting out and visiting the nurseries within the group and seeing how each nursery operates.

Everyone at Ashbourne Day Nurseries has been wonderful, inviting, and friendly and I am looking forward to continuing my apprenticeship within the business and seeing where it takes me in the future.
