Meet Naomi - Support Apprentice
Why did you choose to work for MAN?
I chose to work for MAN because it came across to me as an attractive company with lots of opportunities to progress and learn.
Describe what it’s like to work here in three words.
Dynamic, exciting and encouraging.
What do you get up to in a typical week?
In a typical week my tasks always tend to vary, being an apprentice I am always learning new things and being trained to complete new tasks. My jobs vary from completing assignments to completing tasks in my team such as order management.
What’s been your proudest moment at work?
My proudest moment at work was being told by the Aftersales Director that I was ‘one for the future’ for doing well in my previous role of Parts.
What makes someone successful here?
I think that all the employees here at MAN are successful, as everyone is always willing to put the effort in to help the company out and wants to do well; not just for themselves but also for the business.
How have you and your career developed since you joined us?
I have now been doing my apprenticeship here at MAN for two years. When I first started I had zero knowledge about trucks or the commercial vehicle industry. I began in a department called R&M and I have now moved around the business in two other departments. I have received the knowledge that I wouldn’t have got anywhere else.
What’s the best thing about working for MAN?
The best thing working for MAN is how welcoming and supportive the people are. I have met some great people who have been helpful and supportive throughout my Apprenticeship so far.

What’s been your proudest moment outside of work?
My proudest moment outside of work is when I passed my driving test.
If you could invite 3 people to a dinner party, who would they be?
Stacey Soloman, Zac Efron and Will Ferrell.
Tell us something about yourself that might surprise us.
I once caused myself very severe burns to my hand from frying bacon!
What’s your favourite film?
I have far too many to pick one favourite, but The Longest Yard, The Blind Side and The Shawshank Redemption.
What’s your signature dish?
Unfortunately I’m not much of a chef, so I’d say my signature dish is crumpets with melted cheese.
