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).

You can read the full nomination below!

Energy

 

Stefan has displayed an incredible energy from day one and that energy has certainly not waned. He has been an inspiration to all in the team with his level of maturity and application to the role.

 
Enthusiasm

 

Since Stefan joined euNetworks he has work hard every day. He has a fantastic work ethic and is a total finisher who sees things through to the end. Stefan takes huge pride in all that he does and really wants to succeed. He has a clear vision for his future and this only enhances his drive to succeed. There have been occasions in recent weeks where I have had to ask Stefan to go home in the evenings when he has stayed late in the office, such is his dedication to keep on top of his work. Stefan is a huge asset to the team and in the short time that he has been here has raised the bar very high for himself and he keeps doing so.

Willingness To Learn

Stefan always has his notebook in hand and thrives on learning new things in the role. He has been thrown in at the deep end during busy periods but is never phased by any of it. He gets his head down and pushes himself forward. He is now solely responsible for two of our business entities and is already forging relationships with business partners and colleagues alike in the most professional manner. Stefan is integral to the team and to the future development of the team. 

 

Ability To Take Feedback

 Stefan is very self aware and good humoured and always willing to take feedback be it positive or constructive criticism. This is particularly noticeable during meetings with his manager and during his mentoring sessions and this great attitude only serves to enhance his performance levels.

 

Propensity To Take Action 

 

Stefan has had to deal with some business critical situations within the team in recent weeks. He has used a clear headed logical approach to get issues resolved and he has the talent and good sense to follow the path that will lead to a resolution. He is enthusiastic in the extreme and bursting with great ideas to change and improve the process.  Stefan is doing a great job. His mature and level headed approach has only served to enhance his performance and growth in the role in the past months.

 

Congratulations Stefan!

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! 

Farhana @ Royal Society for Blind Children – Future LDN Apprentice of the Month

Farhana @ Royal Society for Blind Children – Future LDN Apprentice of the Month

We are happy to announce that the winner of Future LDN Apprentice of the Month is Farhana @ Royal Society for Blind Children!

 

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:

Farhana was the first apprentice ever employed in our department and her post had previously been designated a full-time role. Having identified the role’s potential as an apprentice post we amended its responsibilities to allow dedicated learning time and to take into account the probable youth, inexperience and development needs of our apprentice. However, Farhana threw herself into the role and it quickly became apparent that she was hungry to learn and more than capable of accepting the challenges of a multi-faceted role. Within a short space of time, Farhana had taken on the full range of responsibilities and duties attached to the role and has since undertaken additional project work with managers and colleagues across the organisation.

Enthusiasm:

Farhana quickly established herself as a popular member of the team. She conducts herself professionally and approaches her work with a maturity that belies her age and business experience. She is extremely organised and this allows her to be flexible, willingly adjusting her workplan to the changing priorities of her day. She is also reliable – if Farhana commits to something we know it will be done competently, with minimum supervision and within deadline. A natural problem solver, her growing self-belief has allowed her to voice her opinions and make suggestions, often drawing on her apprenticeship learning, and she can always be relied upon to remind us to lock our computers when we leave the room!

Willingness To Learn:

Farhana is a quick learner and this has enabled her to take on not only the full range of responsibilities associated with her role but also many additional tasks and personal development activities. She has initiative and is able to learn from colleagues and from each new business experience that she encounters. She also has the intelligence to apply each new piece of learning to all of her work, so that she is continuously reviewing and improving her own practice, to the benefit of the business.

Ability To Take Feedback:

 Farhana is happy to receive feedback, is never defensive and it is clear that she takes it on board and acts upon it. She is always willing to check her work, to clarify when she is unsure and to solicit feedback when it has not been offered. Importantly, she is also learning to be assertive in support of her own decisions and to give, as well as receive, feedback –  an important aspect of personal development.  

Propensity To Take Action:

Farhana has really developed in this area and is showing initiative and a willingness to take responsibility for her decisions. This has been particularly clear in her work on the new CRM system, when she has often taken independent action to deal with glitches, ensuring that the operation wasn’t interrupted and communicating across departments to update on system status and actions taken.

 

 

Congratulations Farhana! 

Danielle @ Bespoke Curtains and Blinds – Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month

Danielle @ Bespoke Curtains and Blinds – Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month

We’re happy to announce that the winner of Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month is Danielle @ Bespoke Curtains and Blinds 

 

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). Danielle’s nomination is below:

 

Energy: Danielle has been a breath of fresh air to the company. She has a wonderful and pleasant nature and has integrated seamlessly into our small office. Danielle’s excellent start has put aside any question I had about whether an apprenticeship was the right choice for the company. I can see Danielle being a great success for us.

Enthusiasm: Danielle approaches her work with a positive mindset. She is focused on her tasks and her enthusiasm for digital marketing is obvious. She enjoys her work and seems to enjoy working with our small team. Danielle’s time here has given me the impression she would like her new role to contribute to the success of the business – in short she has given me the impression that she is dedicated and cares. These are great attributes from an employer’s perspective.

Willingness To Learn: This follows my previous comments as Danielle has shown great propensity for her work and tasks. Danielle has overseen a complete revamp of our social media platforms. On our recent catch up meeting she expanded on the different analytics and programs she has introduced to help raise our profile and track the development. I found this remarkable. We have already seen positive feedback and Danielle has already put forward ideas on how we could continue to improve our presence.

 

Ability To Take Feedback: Danielle is very approachable and a very good listener. Any replies or suggestions are always considered and well thought out. These are excellent qualities and allow for easy and free flowing exchanges. She takes feedback on board and implements things well.

 

Propensity To Take Action: This one of Danielle’s strong points. In fact, she secured the role by showing excellent initiative in the trial day she spent with us. She kept herself busy throughout the day and showed flair in working through her tasks. I am pleased to say she has continued in this manner ever since. This is crucial to Danielle’s success given we are a small company and she is left to her own devices in many respects. When given tasks, she carries them out efficiently and nearly always at the first time of asking. In addition to this, Danielle continuously introduces new ideas and methods and has begun to create a genuine and important role within our company which quite simply did not exist before her arrival. 

 

Congratulations Danielle!

Tan @ Warner Bros – Future LDN Apprentice of the Month

We are happy to announce that the winner of Future LDN Apprentice of the Month is Tan @ Warner Bros!

 

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). Tan’s nomination is below:

Energy:

Tan expresses strong energy everyday with no task being too small or too big. He is always willing to take on tasks from all departments and not just his immediate team and this energy is definitely making his valuable asset amongst all teams in finance. Tan has to business partner a lot in WB, and he does so very well. If asked about the sales team to investigate variances in their figures, he shows good energy to them by taking on the task immediately, much to their delight!

Enthusiasm:

Tan has said many a time that he is always wanting to take on more work and he would like to try new tasks all the time. It is this enthusiasm that he shows on a daily basis that makes him well respected within the finance community at WB. He is always willing to make conversation with other finance colleagues and as such, is becoming a strong character in the team.

 

Willingness To Learn:

Tan has regular sessions in his own for learning and improving his skills. I am incredibly impressed with his willingness to learn and how far he has come. We are implementing new programs in WB which very few people in WB are proficient at (Tableau), and Tan has taken it upon himself to learn more in his own time, and sought out the WB experts to add to that knowledge.

Ability To Take Feedback:

Myself and Tan’s colleague Martin have regular 1:1’s with Tan, and when demonstrating negative feedback, it appears to never hold him back. In fact, he strives to correct his mistakes and ensures that he takes on the feedback to prove he is capable.

Propensity To Take Action:

This month Tan has improved significantly in taking initiative to new tasks to improve them. We have a lot of customers in WB where we need to price check the amounts our product is sold for. It is a complex process but Tan has created his own file which makes this  a much easier process.

 

Congratulations Tan! 

Serena Vano @ Simply Business – Future LDN Apprentice of the Month

Serena Vano @ Simply Business – Future LDN Apprentice of the Month

We’re happy to announce that the winner of Future LDN Apprentice of the Month is Serena Vano @ 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). Samuel’s nomination is below:

 

Energy: Serena is a fantastic person to have on the team, not only because of the amazing support she provides, but because of her positivity and energy she brings every day. Everyone seems to smile and laugh when they speak to Serena, as her energy is infectious and her personality is so friendly and uplifting.

 

Enthusiasm: Every single task given to Serena has been taken on with full enthusiasm and determination. Whether it is small tasks or complex projects brought her way, she always gets stuck in and motivates me too! This also allows us to celebrate our successes and embrace the variety in our work. Her enthusiasm for her work means people enjoy working with her and trust that she will put her all into anything sent her way..

 

Willingness To Learn: Serena has taken the initiative to upskill herself on programs such as Google sheets, Google docs, and our recruitment software Lever. This helps her in her day to day work and she has even shown me a thing or two! In any quiet moments during the week I can always find Serena doing training, using all her spare time effectively. She also asks great questions and is not afraid to reach out to me or other members of the team to gather information that she needs to complete her work.

 

Ability To Take Feedback: Serena’s positive attitude and personality means that we work very openly, and can discuss any feedback in situ and build on it. 

 

Propensity To Take Action: Serena is incredible efficient, which means the wider team and I can always rely on her to get jobs done quickly (which is an important part of our role). Serena always thinks ahead and goes above and beyond, so that when I think of things or ask her to help out, she has often already thought of it and actioned it. This also means I have confidently handed processes over to Serena knowing that she will run with it and use her initiative, making her and incredibly valuable member of the team!

 

 

Congratulations Serena!
