Generation Logistics case study: Evelina Slavova, Business Improvements Apprentice, Amazon
For Evelina, the decision to apply to Amazon’s apprenticeship scheme was life changing.
Having previously worked as a freelance nail technician and an operations manager at a cleaning company, the opportunity to earn while she learned, obtaining new qualifications and skills, was all she needed to make the career switch.
Evelina joined the retail company as a packer, in a bid to gain new experiences and opportunities she couldn’t access before. One of her managers spotted her talent and encouraged her to apply for the Business Improvement Techniques Programme (BIT).
"I was looking to improve my English and also grow my confidence. I decided that an apprenticeship would help me to improve my knowledge and grow within Amazon. I believe that taking the decision to apply for the BIT programme changed my life, it’s helped me to grow both professionally and personally.”
After successful completion of the Amazon Level 2 Business Improvements Apprenticeship, Evelina went on to complete the Level 3 Team Leader Apprenticeship with a distinction, allowing her to secure a permanent area management role, with another promotion a year later.
“At Amazon, you are always being encouraged to grow and succeed, and the apprenticeship has greatly improved my confidence. To anyone thinking about signing up, I say just apply!”
