My name is Mathew Close and I am 19 years old. I am a warehouse operative in Gosport and completing a warehousing NVQ.
I have been working in this role for nearly a year. In my role I pick orders, label stock, conduct general cleaning in the warehouse, palletise boxes.
I enjoy palletising boxes best as this is more challenging and has to be done right, it must be perfect and not stacked too high so they are safe.
I chose the apprenticeship as it is a new way to learn new skills and I really enjoy it.
I would encourage anyone to do an NVQ. It is a new way of learning at work and it is fun. It can sound boring on the job title but it is more interesting and the job more exciting and fun. A fun way to learn.
I think that I will gain skills that will help me in my career and I would like to be a supervisor one day. This apprenticeship is giving me the skills to use a fork lift, palletise and other Warehousing jobs ready to be a supervisor.
