Aaron Fairman who is 16 years old has joined the Quills Group team to undertake his weeks’ work experience.
Before arriving at Quills Aaron’s objective for his placement was to understand how a business operates and in particular the financial side of the company, including the systems used on a day to day basis.
So far Aaron has had a full rundown on the company from Andy Efstathiou, Managing Director, managed product updates, edited web copy, published a web article, delivered and built some chairs and spent the day with one of the Quills drivers George.
Aaron said, “I have found this experience very enjoyable and I love how friendly and understanding all of the staff have been since I arrived on Monday. I’ve enjoyed understanding the full process of an order being received right through to the point of delivery. I was really keen to see how all of the financial data was logged onto the Quills back-office system and I feel I have a good understanding of this now. The not so good part for me was being out on the road assisting with deliveries when it was unusually hot for the UK and reached over 30 degrees!
