The main thing that attracted me to applying for an apprenticeship at Venture 1 was the opportunity to learn from those who have years of experience in the field.

If I could use one word to express my impression of working at Venture 1 so far it would be “refreshing”. The team is welcoming, and the working environment feels constructive yet calm. It has made me as a new starter feel more confident to move forward, without feeling pressured or overly anxious (which can normally be the case when entering a new field for the first time).
