Kickstart Your Career as an Apprentice Business Administrator!

Location: Cardiff
Salary: At least £6.40 p/hr (minimum wage for apprentices, although this is flexible depending on the candidate)

About Us:

Hey there! We’re Sphere Solutions, specialist recruiters for the construction industry. We’ve been around since 2005 and are a reputable and established business.  As an employee-owned company, we put a lot of focus on employee wellbeing and teamwork. We believe that skills can be taught, but attitude is key. The work here is fast paced and often demanding, but we have a strong and supportive team ethic where no one is left behind.

What you’ll do:

As our new Business Administrator Apprentice, you’ll provide support to our team of credit controllers in the Finance department. Whilst this is an entry level position, we’ll support you with both your studies and all the training you’ll need to develop the skills and knowledge for this role.  You’ll become the go-to person for assisting the team with a variety of administrative tasks. Your day-to-day will include:

  • Data entry: Input data into our account’s packages.
  • Supporting credit controllers: Help track queries and pull copies of invoices and supporting documents.
  • Updating records: Maintain various spreadsheets and reports.
  • Document checks: Perform checks on documents for accounts with specific rules and requirements.
  • Solving problems: Tackle challenges head-on and find smart solutions.
  • Team collaboration: Jump in to help colleagues whenever needed.

The successful candidate will finish the apprenticeship with a City & Guilds qualification at Level 2 and/or 3 in Business Administration. Why not take this opportunity to earn whilst you learn?

What we’re looking for:

We’re all about opportunities at Sphere.  This is an entry-level position so whilst we still want to hear about any relevant experience, we’re more focussed on the person and their natural traits and personality.  We’re keen for applications from people who see themselves in the below description:


  • Inquisitive mind: You love learning new things and asking questions.
  • Problem solver: You enjoy figuring things out and finding solutions.
  • Resilient attitude: You don’t give up easily and can handle setbacks.
  • Attention to detail: You notice the small stuff and know it matters.
  • Methodical worker: You’re organized and like to follow a plan.
  • Team player: You’re not afraid to get stuck in and help your colleagues.

Desirable (1 or more of):

  • Maths and English GCSE (or equivalent) Grade C or above
  • Familiarity with computer technology & comfortable utilising Microsoft Office software (Outlook/ Excel)
  • Previous experience within a role that required administrative skills

Why Join Us?

  • Learning & Development: Support through Level 2 and/or 3 Business Administration qualifications through City & Guilds.
  • Great team: Work with friendly, supportive colleagues in a business big enough to make an impact, but small enough to feel you’re amongst friends
  • Growth opportunities: Potential for a permanent role after the apprenticeship.
  • Employee wellbeing: We care about your wellbeing and foster a positive working environment.
  • 23 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays
  • Access to company private medical plan*
  • Membership of our Employee Ownership scheme, including annual tax-free bonus*
  • All expenses paid company celebration and wellbeing days
  • Opportunity to take part in volunteering and Social Value activities within the local community
  • Flexible working options available:  you work to live, not live to work!
  • Competitive salary flexible, depending on the candidate & open to negotiation at offer stage
