What skills make a good Music4Good apprentice?

Positive attitude - a positive outlook to life, work and other people is an effective tool of fitting in and developing relationships at work.

Reliability - being punctual and on time to work may seem obvious, but it is one of the easiest areas to slip up in and create a long lasting bad impression.

Hard working - the music industry may be glamorous on the outside, but it requires a lot of hard work and dedication. There is a lot of administration work involved in junior roles, which many apprentices fill.

Digital Skills - Knowledge and application of digital skills (social networking, HTML, etc) are key growth areas in music industry.
