Business Administration Apprenticeship

I’ve not come across one person at Irwin Mitchell who isn’t friendly or helpful and supportive. They always make sure we can get whatever possible from our apprenticeship and offer support with work and our overall wellbeing.

Charlotte Turton, Apprentice Business Administrator

On our 24-month apprenticeship, you’ll learn a range of business administration skills and put them to practice in the workplace.

You’ll be responsible for a wide range of tasks, including:

  • Organising and filing documents
  • Making travel arrangements
  • Booking meeting rooms
  • Managing diaries
  • Supporting the delivery of high levels of client communication
  • Supporting colleagues with queries from clients and other parties.

You’ll earn a starting salary of £18,018 (£20,111 in London) and get a range of employee benefits too.

Is It For Me?

This apprenticeship is great for anyone who wants to start a career in business administration. Both school leavers and people changing career can benefit from the skills you’ll learn.

What Will I Study?

The academic part of the apprenticeship is delivered by Damar Training via distance learning.

You’ll learn about a variety of topics, from health and safety to customer service, through online activities and webinars.

See more info about what you’ll study and the sort of work you’ll do on the Damar Training website.

What Qualification Will I Get?

When you finish this apprenticeship, you’ll receive a Level 3 Business Administration standard badge of honour.

What Are The Entry Requirements?

You’ll need five GCSEs at grade A* to C (grade 9 – 4 in the numbered system), including Maths and English.

What Can I Do After My Apprenticeship?

Your Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship will help you find work anywhere, but many of our apprentices choose to stay on with us.

There are a number of opportunities open to you here after your apprenticeship. You could carry on working as an administrator, or look to progress to a senior or supervisory role.

Your skills could also lead you to a more specialised position in one of our legal teams, or in another area such as customer service or human resources.
