I joined Aster in September 2016 as a housing apprentice. With very little knowledge about social housing I saw a good opportunity to learn.
In December 2016 I enrolled on a level 3 CIH certificate in housing course and remember thinking ‘I don’t understand any of this housing lingo!’ Well, I have now been working for Aster Group for just over a year and now I do understand the most of the lingo.
This apprenticeship has seen me spend time with each of the housing departments (rent accounts, Lettings, ASB and Neighbourhoods), where I have picked up some invaluable knowledge. I have now completed my CIH course, and even find myself helping other colleagues that have been in housing for years.
Using what I have learnt at Aster, I would like to develop my career here so I can continue having a positive impact on the lives of our customers.
