Apprentice Diaries

Hello! My name is Oliver Muscat and I’m a Marketing Assistant Apprentice at Exyte Hargreaves. This is the start of my 2-year training and apprenticeship scheme. I have learned more in the first three weeks than I had anticipated, constantly doing something different and discovering something new! I’m glad I joined whilst the business is very busy because I can adapt quicker and to be a part of the new changes. I have met a large majority of the workforce and growing relations with my colleagues. Everyone has treated me with respect and like I was already there for years, and they are always willing to help with anything. From what I have experienced so far, Hargreaves is a positive and relaxed workplace where everyone works effectively towards the company’s goal of further growth and expansion. I am here to learn and to support the ongoing success of Hargreaves.

Marketing Responsibilities

I will be writing up articles for our Intranet site (called the HiP), creating LinkedIn posts, undertaking market research, supporting marketing campaigns, and monitoring our social networks. There’s also the opportunity to do photography, software design work and much more as part of my apprenticeship. My line manager, John Prydderch (our Head of Marketing & Communications) has been respectful, welcoming, and guided me through my first two weeks. He’s providing me with productive tasks, integrating me straight away, attending meetings and educating me about Hargreaves.

My Learning Journey Begins!

My apprenticeship course started on the 28th September 2023 and I am looking forward to the 1.5 years learning more about the Marketing profession and what I can contribute to Hargreaves. I recently finished a business course that will benefit my learning on this apprenticeship.

"One thing I like to do outside of Hargreaves is playing guitar (electric and acoustic) which I have done since I was 14. I also play piano/keyboard and bass because music is a big interest of mine. Some bands/artists I enjoy listening to are Oasis, Kanye West, Motley Crue, Van Halen, Future, Korn and Carti. Another interest of mine is football and I started playing at 6 through a vary of clubs until 16. I do support Manchester United but right now they are difficult to watch."
