‘The help you need to kickstart your career’ – Tom Suttill – Level 3 Digital Marketing Apprentice

‘The help you need to kickstart your career’ – Tom Suttill – Level 3 Digital Marketing Apprentice

Do you need help to give you the confidence to kick-start a career in an ever evolving sector? Tom Suttill, a Level 3 Digital Marketing Apprentice from Leeds gained valuable advice and has now turned his passion into a career!

Tom commented: “3aaa have been fantastic throughout my interview and preparation for potential employers. I have attended a presentation they set up on interview techniques which I found very useful ahead of my employer interview. The staff at 3aaa are very helpful and determined!”

After deciding that A-Levels weren’t for him and wanting to learn in a practical environment, Tom decided to try the Apprenticeship route. He had attended numerous Apprenticeship interviews but had unfortunately been unsuccessful due to the fact that he had felt unsupported and unprepared for interviews by previous providers.

When Tom came for his first interview with 3aaa he was very quiet, shy and identified interviews as a particular weakness but his passion for IT and Digital Marketing still came across strongly in his interview. He had identified Digital Marketing as a growing industry that he could thrive in and that he would love the opportunity to earn and learn at the same time.

The team at our 3aaa Leeds Academy did a lot of work with Tom on a one to one basis to build up his confidence for interviews by setting up presentations and mock interviews where he could put his skills to the test.

After attending an interview with a local company, Tom found himself successful in getting a pivotal role in their company and is now looking forward to a new start with his new found confidence.

Matt Dickinson, Apprentice Intake at Leeds Academy said: “Tom has transformed from a quiet individual, low on confidence, who struggled at interview into an Apprentice who I think has all of the tools to become an outstanding ambassador for 3aaa. In the short time he has been with us, he has shown a great deal of determination and a fantastic can-do attitude.”
