Meet James Burns – HR Apprentice

Meet James Burns, HR Apprentice

James began his University of Lincoln career as the HR Apprentice and is currently undertaking a Business Administration Apprenticeship. He is the first point of contact for all staff and customers who visit the HR reception, and he continually strives to deliver a high level of customer service.

James’ apprenticeship has given him an insight into the higher education sector, while providing experience in a practical working environment where he can develop his skills and progress his career at the University.

“I would never have known I wanted to work in HR if I hadn’t taken this opportunity at the University. Doing an apprenticeship has provided me with much more than just a job; it has given me skills and knowledge I would not have got if I didn’t do it.”
