Apprentice builds new career with Bromak
Kayleigh Harper, 19, first joined Bromak’s Durham branch while studying for her NVQ level 2 in business administration.
She impressed colleagues by completing the year-long scheme in just a few months, prompting Bromak to offer her a full time position as resourcing administrator.
Harper's new role will see her assist the team recruiting for white collar and management positions within the built environment industry.
Harper, who lives in Durham, opted to undertake an apprenticeship after completing her studies at nearby Gilesgate Sports College and Sixth Form Centre.
She was one of four apprentices who joined Bromak earlier this year as the firm continues to invest in developing young people across its branch network.
Harper said, “I learnt a lot on the apprenticeship and would recommend it to anyone. It’s a great way for young people to get into employment and I love my new role so it’s worked out perfectly for me.”
Dave Brooks, managing director at Bromak, said, “Kayleigh is an extremely bright, switched-on girl who demonstrated tremendous commitment, both to the programme and to her own development.
“We were impressed by how quickly she completed the apprenticeship and she will be a very valuable member of our team.
“As a business, we recognise how important it is to constantly grow and bring in new skills to ensure our workforce remains dynamic and innovative. Apprenticeships are an effective way of training and developing young people for the future and we firmly believe in supporting the apprenticeship scheme.”
Bromak’s Durham office has become its fastest growing branch after opening its doors earlier this year. The firm’s expanding network also includes offices in Bolton, Liverpool, Sheffield, Lichfield and Watford.
