Welcoming Ryan to the Business Development Team

Rompa has taken on a number of apprentices in the last few months and the most recent addition is Ryan who has joined Rompa’s Business Development Team.

Ryan SmythI joined Rompa’s Business Development Team as a Business Admin Apprentice in January 2015. I was nervous as this was only my second job and I had grown used to the working environment of my previous employer, but the Rompa staff couldn’t have treated me better. Everyone was extremely helpful and approachable in my first few days, and that helped me to settle quickly.

On my first day I spend a little bit of time in each department learning how all the cogs in the Rompa machine worked. This was really helpful as I didn’t have a great knowledge of sensory equipment beforehand, but after everyone had explained to me how their department worked, it all began to make sense.

I have always been interested in working in business development, and when I saw this opportunity at Rompa, I knew it was too good to ignore. Being on the apprenticeship allows me to learn more about the industry whilst actually experiencing first hand work on the job, that paired with the knowledge of my colleagues really helps me to understand and develop my skills in this sector.

Since I started at Rompa I’ve been given lots of independence in my role, I already had experience of working in administration but different projects I’ve been given such as competitor and partner analysis has helped me to develop new skills to add to my CV. The variety of tasks I’ve been given is keeping the job really interesting and allowing me to learn every day.

I think the kind nature of all the staff and the positive impact we have on people’s lives on a daily basis, makes Rompa a very rewarding company to work for.
