After being nominated finalists in categories at the Bristol Post and Bath Chronicle Apprenticeship awards last year, we are thrilled to announce that this year we were awarded Micro-Employer of the Year 2015.
The business would not be where it is today, if I’d not had the help and support of my team Yvette and Will, who both joined Moving Experience through apprenticeship schemes.
Taking on an apprentice in 2013 was a big leap forward for me and for the business. There were personal challenges both in having to develop my own skills and learning to delegate, to enable someone else to progress tasks over which I had exercised full control for more than six years. Yvette completed her ‘Business Administration’ apprenticeship in Summer last year, and continues to work full-time in the business, as well as continuing a programme of study to support changes to her roles and responsibilities. Will joined the business in November last year, and we’re hoping that he will be able to complete his ‘Mortgage Administration’ apprenticeship before Christmas.
It has been an extremely positive experience so far, and together we are continuing to build a strong, reputable and recommendable business. I’m proud of our achievements to date, and to have been formally recognised as a successful employer really shows how far we’ve come in a short space of time.
