Positive Outcomes


A foot in the door to industry and a career

Samantha, 17, is working towards completing an apprenticeship in business administration with Positive Outcomes

Samantha Graham, 17, is a few months into her business administration apprenticeship at Streamline Services, a recruitment company based in Tilbury Docks. She has been working in a fast-paced and multifaceted role, undertaking a range of responsibilities, including: resourcing, planning, liaising with customers and general administration.

Samantha says: “I’ve had a brilliant time working at Streamline Services. I’ve had lots of support and I’ve also had a lot of responsibility and have had to step straight into a customer-facing role. Although this was a bit nerve-wracking to begin with, it’s really helped me to gain confidence early on.”

Samantha found her apprenticeship through Positive Outcomes, one of the UK’s leading specialists in work-based training and apprenticeships, who helped prepare her for the interview process. They’ve also continued to support her throughout her time at the company.

Samantha is enthusiastic when discussing her apprenticeship. She says: “I would definitely recommend apprenticeships to young adults, because it’s a foot in the door to the industry, and a career. I’m really pleased with everything – I think working here, in an environment that interests and challenges me, has given me greater self-belief.”
