Hi, I’m Joe, and I’m Two Chimps Coffee’s latest addition.
I’m their Business Admin Apprentice. Sounds fancy right? Let me start by telling you a bit about my life.
I have lived in Oakham all my life where I attended Brooke Hill Primary School. That was a simpler life when all I had to worry about was making it home in time to watch Arthur (which is an absolute classic).
After that, I attended Catmose College which was pretty different from attending a school with only 300 pupils. I can still remember my first week where I’m pretty sure I got lost at least twice a day. After figuring out where I was meant to be, I continued at Catmose all the way through till Year 11.
When I started secondary school, I never thought I’d be sat here writing a blog post about myself. I always thought I’d be an astronaut. But then again I’m pretty sure every boy my age felt the same.
As secondary school passed, I attended New College Stamford where I completed a Level 2 Diploma in Business. Again this was even different from secondary school as there were people from all over the place and from all sorts of different backgrounds. From my course, I learnt so much about what goes into running a business and the logistics to it all.
Where It All Started
As my college course was coming to an end, I realised that sitting in a classroom all day wasn’t my bag. So, I started looking for an apprenticeship.
This meant I could get some hands-on experience of being part of a business and applying what I had learnt. I spent ages looking for an apprenticeship until I finally found one that stood out to me. Just by the name ‘Two Chimps Coffee’ I knew this would be an awesome place to work (and it really is!).
I spent ages writing my application, and it felt like a lifetime until I heard back from them and they invited me for an interview. As I arrived, I didn’t have a clue what to expect. However, it soon became clear that this was definitely my sort of place to work.
After about a week I got a phone call, and I was offered the apprenticeship! I began working at Two Chimps Coffee at the start of August and have loved every minute of it since.
What I get up to
So now I’ve introduced myself, let me tell you about what I get up to here at Chimp Towers.
