Meet Gavinder – Buying and Merchandising Apprentice
In my short time at Amazon, my typical day at work has been fast moving, with a lot of variety. Some days my focus is on Amazon specific training, learning the unique ways of the Amazon, knowledge of systems and processes. On other days I am shadowing and supporting colleagues. I have picked up more new skills and learnt more in a few weeks at Amazon than I did in many years during my prior career.
Direct industry experience has accelerated my learning. I am someone who learns best by putting theory into practice. The Apprenticeship workshops & assignments have provided a strong foundation to understand buying & merchandising across the industry.
But from shadowing colleagues at Amazon, and taking on more and more tasks for Amazon, I am able to see how things work in practice, add context to the concepts and help those concepts sink in. Without that opportunity of direct industry experience, I know my learning and development would be a much slower process.
