Jake is one of our lovely production apprentices, and he joined the BM team in November 2018. He heard about the apprenticeship from other people doing the apprenticeship here too!

Jake was employed as a dispatcher initially, but after working here he realised he was interested in the industry and the processes!

Jake currently works in our Vinyl printing department and a typical day for him consists of weeding and printing orders in the vinyl department. 

He also does the stock and packing in dispatch!

I asked Jake a few questions about his apprenticeship to shed a bit more light on the life of an apprentice here at BM...

What is the best part of your job?

I love seeing good outcomes in prints for the customer!

What’s your favourite memory at BM so far?

The Banana Moon Christmas do, and the average day really. The Olive & Grace photo shoot was also interesting!

Jake is a part of the Olive & Grace team. Olive & Grace is a small clothing brand that is run by a few of us here at BM. It gives us a bit of a creative outlet aside from the daily jobs!

What do you find rewarding about your job?

When I start the day, I get a list of jobs that need to be completed. I like seeing the list decrease throughout the day and leaving a full box of orders ready to be dispatched!

Do you have any hobbies outside of work?

Photography, Skating and Music! 

An interesting fact about you?

I consider my way of thinking to be ‘spiritual’. I love the planet and the idea that we are only here temporarily. I’m always being the best I can be to help others.

Here's an example of some of Jake's photography- he's even done some work for Olive & Grace!

It's great that Banana Moon allows apprentices to incorporate their hobbies and passions into their working life, it's usually rare that the two can cross over. Check out Jake's Instagram page if you want to see more of his work. 

Thanks to Jake for spending the time to answer us a few questions, tune back into the blog tomorrow for another apprentice spotlight!
