DfT: A typical day in the life of the EO Apprentice
Category: Employer Focus, diversity, Government, travel and leisure, apprentice
The role of EO Apprentice in the Maritime Promotion and Partnerships team supports the delivery of a number of key workstreams that impact on the work of Maritime Directorate and the Department for Transport as a whole.
A typical day in the life of the EO Apprentice might start by checking the London International Shipping Week (LISW) project plan and risk register to make sure that they are up-to-date. This could also involve checking in with the workstream leads to make sure that they are on track with their work and whether they require any additional resource to hit their milestones. The day would continue with a team meeting to discuss priorities for the week and an opportunity to highlight any issues from the project plan and risk register.
Later in the morning the apprentice would accompany the HEO to a meeting with colleagues from UKTI to discuss overseas involvement during the week. They would then draft a note of the meeting to share with the International Cooperation team on what had been and discussed during the meeting.
After lunch the apprentice would print out copies of the LISW steering group papers and prepare them for the Deputy Director. They would then accompany the Deputy Director to the steering group meeting in the City of London to take notes of the meeting. The end of the day could see the apprentice accompanying the G7 and HEO to an optional evening networking event to promote LISW to industry.
