Molly Baskerville is a shining example of what an apprentice can achieve in a short space of time. After finishing school earlier this year, Molly decided to kickstart her career with Dee Set as a recruitment apprentice.

As one of nine candidates considered for her role, she was selected to begin a 4-week trial and was quickly taken on full time in August. She is now completing her Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship with Achieve Training whilst supporting the recruitment team in interviewing candidates and offering roles.

We chatted with Molly about her experience of working as an apprentice at Dee Set, what she has learned so far, and what she thinks of work experience opportunities while at school.

What have you enjoyed most about working at Dee Set?

One of the best aspects about being part of Dee Set, is the people I work with within the recruitment team. Their continuous support and encouragement really give me the confidence and knowledge to be the best and most authentic version of myself - while also striving to be the best person for the job that I can be. I really like Dee Set’s agile working policy and this shows the business is willing to try new things to create a better work life balance.

What have you learned so far whilst being here?

I have already gained so much insight about recruitment and how to avoid biases towards others through programmes such as powerful interview; I have also learned how to quickly and effectively build relationships with the people I work with and with the candidates I speak to. Another point of development for me would be figuring out how to work in a fast- paced environment as each day at Dee Set is like no other.

We offer a wide range of opportunities across the Group. For more information about what a career with us looks like and for all our current vacancies click here
