What does a Trainee do?

A Trainee is someone working in an entry level position within a business or organisation. Trainees are employed in a range of industries and you’ll be completing study or training as part of your role. You’ll be supported by other staff members in a supervisory or mentoring role and you’ll be given basic tasks appropriate for your experience and skill level. As you gain more experience your daily activities will become more demanding.

Trainees need to be able to follow instructions and work under supervision. You’ll need to be ready to learn and willing to complete whatever tasks are asked of you. Trainees will often complete studies as part of their role and this training may happen outside of your regular work hours.
