Local Apprentice Receives a Star Award

Posted on: Monday 13 July, 2015 | Filed in: General News

Josh Probert, of Wilmslow-based marketing consultancy Mackenzie Marketing, has won an Apprentice Academy Star Award.

Having finished Sixth-Form at Wilmslow High School, Josh was keen to start a career in marketing and digital communication. He started working for Mackenzie Marketing in July last year as part of a year-long Digital Marketing Apprenticeship. His work based learning has been supplemented with classroom based learning at The Apprentice Academy in Manchester.

Mackenzie Marketing’s Managing Director Catherine Mackenzie commented: “We were keen to take on and help develop aspiring marketing professionals and appointing an apprentice seemed a great way to do so. Josh has worked really hard over the last 12 months and we are delighted to have offered him a permanent position in our business once his Apprenticeship finishes later this month.”

“We nominated him for the Apprentice Academy Star Award because of the real commitment he has shown our company and his studies. He has really grown during the last 12 months and is a key member of our team. He really deserves the Star Award in recognition of all his hard work.”

Josh said: “I am really pleased to have won this award. I have thoroughly enjoyed my apprenticeship over the last year and cannot wait to start my new permanent job here.”

As part of Josh’s Apprenticeship he has worked with a range of local clients, including Wilmslow High School; business travel management company, Review Travel; accountancy firm, Castletons Accountants; local Greek-Cypriot restaurant, the Stolen Lamb; as well as Wilmslow Business Group.

Josh was presented with his award by Jim Clarke from The Apprentice Academy, which is one of the leading providers of apprenticeships in Greater Manchester.
