Callum, PR executive, MC2
After attending Pendleton College in Salford, the opportunity to earn a wage and continue learning at the same time attracted Callum to an apprenticeship.
Six months into his role at marketing and communications specialist MC2, Callum has progressed from marketing apprentice to PR executive, and has his eyes firmly set on his next goal.
Before starting his apprenticeship, Callum was nervous about meeting a new group of people but settled quickly into his new role. He's found the biggest difference between school and work is getting paid for what you do. His biggest challenge has been learning new terminology and how the business works. He's hoping to move up the career ladder again soon.
