We are happy to announce that the winner of Future LDN June Apprentice of the Month is Isabel @ Funding Circle!

Funding circle is a company dedicated to supporting small business’ in financial loaning. We’ve had several amazing young people work here and excel in the workplace such as Apprentice of the year 2019, Ellie O’Reilly.  Isobel is one of many who since arrival has become an asset to the team whilst demonstrating valuable workplace qualities. 

 LDN Apprenticeships highlights a clear message of what makes an AWESOME Apprentice; they must show energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action (EEWAP). Isabel’s nomination is below:

Energy:

Isabel comes into work every day with a smile on her face and brings a huge amount of positivity to the desk. She gets on with everyone in the team, is a brilliant team player and will always step forward to cover other people. She is always willing to help others and I have received great feedback about her from her colleagues and also others around the business.

Enthusiasm:

Isabel has expressed how grateful she is to be here and I can see that every day in the effort she puts in. She completes her coursework to an excellent standard and is great at keeping me in the loop on how it is going. In her probation meeting she came with loads of ideas on what she wanted to improve on and her 6 month development plan. This level of enthusiasm and commitment to the role really embodies the Funding Circle values.

Willingness To Learn:

Isabel has always been willing to take on new challenges even when they’ve pushed her outside of her comfort zone. I often look to Isabel to take on additional responsibilities as she is always keen to push herself, will never complain, and will get her head down straight away, ensuring she gets up to speed as quickly as possible. I have also been really impressed by the fact that during quieter times she has taken it upon herself to arrange to shadow other people in the team to gain more knowledge in other areas.

Ability To Take Feedback:

I have weekly catch ups with Isabel and during these she will always proactively seek feedback. Throughout her probation period she would often check in with me to ensure she was exactly where she needed to be, and if she was ever falling behind she would make sure she knew what she needed to do to catch up. She is very calm-natured and takes on feedback well and will make a visible effort to implement it in the following week.

Propensity To Take Action:

 Isabel is targeted on both her volume and quality of work and at the time of writing she has exceeded her targets for 12 weeks in a row which is exceptional for someone who has only been here since the start of the year. She has recently been successful in obtaining a new role in another department and I know she do an amazing job there too! 

Congratulations Isabel!

We’re happy to announce that the winner of Tech LDN June Apprentice of the Month is My’a Douglas @ Yoobic!

 Yoobic helps retailers optimize their stores, operations, and teams to increase conversions. My’a is currently one of three LDN Apprentices atYoobic who exceed company expectations on a day-to-day basis. My’a’s attitude within the workplace is a true reflection of the values LDN Apprenticeships support. 

LDN Apprenticeships highlights a clear message of what makes an AWESOME Apprentice; they must show energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action (EEWAP). Read My’a’s nomination below:

 

Energy: My’a comes into work every day with a smile on her face and is always keen to get stuck in with her daily tasks. She quite clearly lifts the spirits of other team members with her cheerful temperament, which is really nice to see.


Enthusiasm: 
In the world of QA testing, certain tasks can become quite tedious at times due to the repetitive nature of activity. With My’a, however, she is always enthused to get going with the work, no matter how dull the task may appear to be.

 

Willingness To Learn: There’s lots to learn within the QA domain, whether that’s new tools, technologies or techniques. My’a frequently asks questions to get a better understanding of how things work and what skills / new techniques may improve her practice. I can see she is regularly reading documentation on the tools we use and watching various YouTube tutorials about QA / Development technologies, which will no doubt help her achieve her goals during her apprenticeship. 

 

Ability To Take Feedback: When I conduct the monthly reviews I give each of the apprentices feedback that includes areas for improvement. My’a always takes the feedback positively and on most occasions comes to me for further details on how she can improve, taking note of steps to be taken until the next review.

 

Propensity To Take Action: Every day in the QA team there’s a lot of tasks to carry out (sometimes too many!). As the QA lead, I am usually juggling many tasks at once and the apprentices can see / appreciate this. I can the sense that My’a understands that I’m very busy and knows that I cannot always assist the team with their work. She will always take matters into her own hands and shows a great level of initiative, which is extremely helpful for me when I don’t always have time to assist in certain tasks.

 

I really am grateful to have My’a in my team and not only is she a great asset to the team in terms of the work she contributes, but she’s a great person and I really believe she has a bright future ahead of her.

Congratulations My’a!

We are happy to announce that the winner of Future LDN Apprentice of the Month is Libby @ Zebra People!

 

LDN Apprenticeships highlights a clear message of what makes an AWESOME Apprentice; they must show energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action (EEWAP). Farhana’s nomination is below:

Energy:

Libby brings a considered energy to the office and is always aware of her surroundings. She is consistent and a subtle source of energy around the office. When it comes to the job, Lib brings energy at all times and no task is ever too great or met with negativity. Lib has a long way to travel to and from work and has never once complained about the journey or being tired. She is extremely diligent!

Enthusiasm:

It has been great watching Lib enjoy the role and also brilliant to see that she doesn’t let the hard parts of the role dissuade her. She has a level of maturity beyond her years and is calm and level headed (recruitment can be extremely hard and disappointing at times – where you feel like time has been wasted) and it is impressive to watch Libby deal with frustrating situations handling them with expertise and maturity. She doesn’t let anything get to her – and is determined to do a great job at all times. She is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Willingness To Learn:

Libby is genuinely interested in our industry and always takes action to increase her knowledge in certain disciplines. She is an extremely quick learner, who is able to quickly digest and assimilate new knowledge. She is always enthusiastic when receiving new knowledge and gracious in accepting this. She is also very good when it comes to teaching others new things and helping where needed. The amount of information that Libs has processed and taken on board since the start of her apprenticeship is extremely impressive. She will ask for help if needed – but usually she is able to pick things up the first time and never has to be asked to complete something for second time as her work is always excellent.

Ability To Take Feedback:

 Excellent. Lib takes feedback very well and makes sure that she listens to what she is being told and really takes this onboard. She constantly seeks feedback too and ways to improve her work. She is gracious and mature in accepting feedback. Her ability to communicate throughout this process is excellent.

Propensity To Take Action:

Brilliant – Lib is quick to action tasks, and is always very organised and on top of things (she actually helps organise me!). You only have to ask Lib to do something once and she does it extremely well & thoroughly.

 

Congratulations Libby!

We’re happy to announce that the winner of Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month is Sam Stone @ Simply Business!

 

LDN Apprenticeships highlights a clear message of what makes an AWESOME Apprentice; they must show energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action (EEWAP). Read Sams’s nominationbelow:

 

Energy: Sam shows a great amount of energy and determination when it comes to problem solving and investigating new unknown projects. He doesn’t give up until he finds a way to complete his objective. No matter what deadlines he is working to, Sam is always willing to help anyone else in the team with any problem or question that they may have. 

 

Enthusiasm: He is very enthused by all things Tech, Infosec and Data! He has demonstrated that he can brief senior peers within the company with a project in a very clear and concise way, this is great progress. Sam always turns up to work on time and gives 100% every day. Plus he always makes us laugh! 

 

Willingness To Learn:   He is curious and continually learning, he always asks himself the question or to his peers to really understand what he is working with, this is a fantastic trait to have! Sam wants to know it all, I can tell that he is pushing himself to learn as much as he can while he is on this apprenticeship with LDN Apprenticeships and Simply Business. Examples of this is that he listens in closely with our Infosec team to understand it more and in any spare time, he does further self-learning through online courses.

Ability To Take Feedback: When Sam first started, he shared that he had only ever worked on projects by himself so therefore hadn’t needed to communicate with anyone about progress or take any feedback. Now, he works in a team and I regularly give him constructive feedback to polish his strong skills. He has really improved at listening to feedback, showing that he understands and fundamentally takes action on feedback. 

Propensity To Take Action: I couldn’t be happier about Sam’s ability to independently take action using his own initiative to find the best solution! An amazing example of this is his project to rebuild the monthly Newsletter that gets sent to nearly a 1 million subscribers. He has taken the time to learn a new code language so that he could use it to implement his new audience selection queries, built in Looker. As nobody in our team has yet become versed in this, I’ve asked him to obtain a peer review from our Head of Analytics. This is outstanding, Sam has not stuck to what we know and do today, and has gone away to learn and build new logic that we can use going forward, he deserves huge kudos for this!

 

Congratulations Sam!
