Ap­pren­tices get full-time roles

Stockport Express - - Business -

THE Ver­non Build­ing So­ci­ety has given full-time jobs to two of its ap­pren­tices and taken on a new trainee.

Melissa Fyfe, aged 18, has been ap­pointed as a busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tor, while James Cor­ri­gan, also 18, is now a fi­nance of­fi­cer at the mu­tual so­ci­ety. Both com­pleted a year-long ap­pren­tice­ship at the Stock­port-based so­ci­ety work­ing across a num­ber of de­part­ments and in branches.

Libby Maugham, aged 16, has just started her 12-month ap­pren­tice­ship, with all three place­ments or­gan­ised by Da­mar Train­ing in Stock­port.

James said: “Ap­pren­tice­ships give great on-the-job train­ing in a work en­vi­ron­ment and that’s not some­thing you get at col­lege.”
