Millie's work experience at Go Ape

Millie joined the team at Banana HQ for some work experience in the summer of 2021, just after finishing school. Working in the events team, Millie had a quick introduction into the world of work as she helped the team during peak season. So, we thought we’d catch up with Millie on her last day to see how she found the whole experience.

Over to you Millie!

Why did you choose Go Ape?

I chose Go Ape as it offered me the chance to experience an office workspace whilst giving me the help I needed from my amazing co-workers. I also chose it to help open my options for the future.

 

How did you feel on your first day?

I felt very nervous on my first day as I wasn’t sure what it would entail. However, after introductions I began to feel a bit more confident.

What did you do in your time at Go Ape?

Whilst I worked at Go Ape, I worked as a seasonal admin support, I worked under the lovely Robyn who patiently helped me through any issues I had. I met a lot of friendly people and became very close with everyone in the office as they were very friendly.

Throughout my time at Go Ape I sent out emails to clients to make sure they had everything they needed for their upcoming events as well as helping them get the documents they needed. I also answered calls and took messages for my co-workers.
