Expectations! Recruitment appoints 2 new apprentices
Becki Hume and Lucy Bull join the Gloucester and Cheltenham offices respectively, filling administrative roles for the agency. Much of their programme has been shaped by the success of Kirsten who has been internally promoted twice and is now a recruitment consultant.
Kirsten Ball became an apprentice at the end of 2012 and exceeded expectations, completing not only her apprenticeship but two qualifications as well as gaining a national award. Her success, and the success of the programme, has prompted Expectations! to hire two additional apprentices.
Abi Howell, director of Expectations! Recruitment Services and manager of the Cheltenham branch says, “We couldn’t have asked for better with our first apprentice and seeing the programme do so much for the next generation of workers is really gratifying. We are delighted to be able to take on two more apprentices and we are looking forward, not only to helping them develop, but also to seeing them rise to the challenge.”
Cheltenham apprentice Lucy Bull manages the front desk, greeting all clients and candidates with a warm welcome she also helps out with the administration for the branch. Meanwhile Becki Hume assists with the daily administration and management of the Gloucester office. Both girls have proven to be valuable members of the team, always happy to help fellow employees and clients.
Sarah Mutton, manager of Expectations! Recruitment Services Gloucester Office says, “We are so excited to have hired two new apprentices and are lucky to have found Becki and Lucy. Both girls have worked above and beyond bringing a great attitude with them to work every day. It is a pleasure to be working with them and helping them gain experience within our company.”
Former apprentice Kirsten Ball, Cheltenham Temporary Worker Consultant commented, “I had such a fantastic time working for Expectations! as an apprentice and felt it was an invaluable experience. I consider myself really lucky to be able to continue the experience as a permanent employee! The fact that Expectations! has employed two more apprentices is just the icing on the cake!”
