National Apprenticeship Week: In conversation with Jamie-Lee Tucker

Throughout National Apprenticeship Week, we’re sharing the stories of Mitie apprentices, so that you can learn more about their personal experiences, and the value of apprenticeships. 

We spoke to Jamie-Lee Tucker, a Fire and Security Apprentice at Mitie: 

Tell us a about your current role and what you were doing before you joined Mitie 

“Before working at Mitie, I was previously a customer service advisor for a bank.” 

Why did you choose to undertake an apprenticeship over the other routes? 

“I feel an apprenticeship is the best option for completing my training and gaining the qualifications I need to progress my career within Mitie.” 

Why did you choose Mitie for your apprenticeship? 

“It’s a diverse and welcoming business to be a part of and having both family and friends within Mitie it seems a great place to be a part of.  

“The training programme offered is also better than the other options available from others.” 

How do you hope the apprenticeship will support your career? 

“Due to the diversity within Mitie and a growing industry that will always be needed, it will give me the skills and experience I need to progress with my career.” 

What would you like to be doing in 5 years’ time? 

“In 5 years’ time, I would want to be working towards being a senior engineer. I also hope to be mentoring other females or minorities within the industry, and planning to progress further.” 

Earlier this week we also spoke to Luke Crawford, and you can read our ‘In conversation with Luke’ here.
