In National Apprenticeship week, Bagnalls are celebrating that we don’t just take on site based apprentices but also administration apprentices. Ellie joined us in June 2016 as an Apprentice Business Administrator, straight from school, she has sailed through her NVQ Level 2 in Business Administration and is now studying for her NVQ Level 3.
Ellie says “I have always had a passion for office work and from a young age, I wanted to be an office manager and go to university to study professional construction. I know that, in the future, if I work hard the company will support me to progress in the company and become a Quantity Surveyor or Project Manager”
Lisa Williams, Ellie’s mentor says “Ellie is a great member of the team, she takes everything in her stride, has a good sense of humour and a great work ethic. Her values and behaviours are what we need in this family business to carry on what was started 142 years ago. I know she will do well in her chosen career path because of the maturity and diligence she has applied to the tasks she has dealt with so far”
Ellie has also been recently shortlisted for the Family Business United (FBU) Apprentice of the Year Competition and we wish her the best of luck at the awards, in June.
