Waleed Hayat; Traffic Office Apprentice
Waleed joined Kinaxia as a Traffic Office Apprentice in December 2019, based at Bay Freight. He talks us through his typical day at work below…
My typical day starts with scanning PODs (Proof of Delivery) from the deliveries the previous day. They are then taken to the accounts office to be processed. After I have done that, I load up my emails and sort through any outstanding tasks before checking if there are any jobs that need changing. In the afternoon, I input jobs and scan paperwork at the end of the day. I also answer the phone when required and am learning more about the PalletForce system.
The best thing about my apprenticeship is working with my colleagues and the atmosphere in the office. I had the opportunity to do this apprenticeship, which is something I wanted to do, and the job specification looked interesting to me, so I applied.
The best piece of advice I have been given is to take time settling in and adapting to the new environment, which I have taken well. I enjoy the happy working environment and all my colleagues have helped me to settle in and are friendly.
