Second apprentice for Wilmslow marketing firm

Posted on: Wednesday 16 September, 2015 | Filed in: General News

Following an incredibly successful 12 months with their first apprentice, staff at Wilmslow marketing firm Mackenzie Marketing are now looking forward to welcoming a second apprentice onto the team.

Mackenzie Marketing’s first apprentice, Josh Probert, started working for the company as part of his marketing apprenticeship in July 2014 and has since been offered a permanent position with Mackenzie Marketing. He proved he had star quality when he was recently presented with an Apprentice Academy Star Award in recognition of his work.

He has developed a wide set of skills that will help him progress his career in marketing and digital communication, and his experience will now help him act as a role model for new apprentice Zach Henshaw.

Like Josh, Zach is also a former Wilmslow High School student and he has shown a keen interest in the technical aspects of handling websites as well as the various IT systems and tools involved in modern marketing strategies.

The apprenticeship will be handled by The Apprentice Academy which is one of the region’s leading providers of apprenticeships, based in Manchester and established in 2009.

The Apprentice Academy has a track record of working with more than 300 employers to guide talented learners in launching their careers, delivering high quality apprenticeship programmes as well as developing candidates and employers to get the most out of their apprentice experience.

Commenting on Zach’s apprenticeship at Mackenzie Marketing, Managing Director Catherine Mackenzie commented: “We’ve always been advocates of doing our bit in the local community as well as helping the next generation to take a step on the ladder in their careers. The apprenticeship scheme enables us to deliver this. At the same time we gain from receiving enthusiastic team members, keen to learn and help us drive our business forward.”

Mackenzie Marketing, which also has strong links with Wilmslow Business Group, has been expanding over recent years to offer clients a complete package of business development services as well as marketing support.

Zach is thrilled to be joining the company, commenting “I am really looking forward to working with everyone in Mackenzie Marketing and the Apprentice Academy. This will allow me to gain many new skills that you can’t truly learn at school, making this experience invaluable to me as I hope to become an integral member of Mackenzie Marketing.”
