Youngster wins apprenticeship accolade
Since joining Abbey in 2018, Liam has quickly become an established member of his team and has already contributed several new initiatives in the business that benefit both his colleagues and customers.
An Abbey apprenticeship scheme is a structured programme managed centrally through our HR team with additional training delivered by specialised external training providers.
Liam joined Abbey following a Think Logistics presentation at his school in Liverpool which introduced him to the opportunities available in the logistics sector.
Following a series of interviews with Abbey, the youngster joined the company as a fleet apprentice supporting its busy workshop teams in Liverpool and Middlewich.
He said: “I have been at Abbey for over two years and my role is fleet administrator within the workshop team. I have enjoyed my time at Abbey every step of the way and I am now completing my second apprenticeship course after passing my customer service practitioner level 2 last year. This year I am working towards team leader for transport manager level 3.
“Leaving sixth form straight into an apprenticeship at Abbey is definitely the best decision I have made as it has given me the skills and knowledge I need so I can progress within the business.
“I am very proud and grateful of winning apprentice of the year as it’s great to know my hard work has been recognised by my colleagues.”
Steve Granite, Abbey Logistics CEO, added: “All of our apprentices have demonstrated amazing ability this year and have contributed significantly to the success of the business and helped support our customers.
“Liam is totally committed to his role and helping others in his team. He works very hard and always has a positive attitude towards his work and colleagues. He has a very bright future ahead of him at Abbey.”
