Alice - B2B Sales Apprentice

My apprenticeship

I work within the Bid Management team at Meggitt studying a B2B Sales degree programme which I started in September 2021. Being a degree apprentice means I work at Meggitt to learn valuable skills in order to help me reach the required level of learning to complete my degree at Leeds Trinty University which is fully subsidised by Meggitt.

My team

I am based at Ansty Park and I work in Services and Support division, which is dedicated to servicing our commercial and military aircraft products through our MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) and Spares operation. My job consists of the management of most EMEA and Americas Aftermarket sales opportunities.

My responsibilities

My job mostly consists of reading and analysing customer documents in order to develop the opportunity into a formalised proposal using influences from the pricing, marketing, sales and commercial team, creating financial models and presentations which outline the details of the opportunity in order to develop the bid for internal approval, whether this be regionally or divisionally. I also help to manage our Electronic Approvals process which we use in order to speed up the review process for each opportunity by using the CRM (Customer Relations Management) platform.

My study

I’m lucky enough that I get a whole day a week to focus on my uni work, where I spend time completing modules for my assignments, this makes it really easy to be able to separate my uni and work life, which was one of my initial concerns when starting my apprenticeship.
