Business finds perfect match with Apprentice

April 2, 2015

Chester based The Bridal Consultants said ‘I Do’ to an Apprenticeship scheme with West Cheshire College which has proved to be a resounding success.

The business, which organises weddings abroad, appointed Sasha Nelson on a year-long Business Administration Apprenticeship to boost the company’s social media presence as well as organise the legal paperwork for couples.

Sasha has been so successful in her Apprenticeship, that she has already secured a permanent position when she finishes her training in April and has helped to grow the business.

Lisa Burton, Principal Consultant at The Bridal Consultants, said: “As a small business we wanted to expand but felt nervous about taking on a new member of staff who would need a lot of training.

“West Cheshire College reassured us that by having an Apprentice they would support us with training and advice.

“Without the College, we wouldn’t have had the capacity to take on our first member of staff, but their support has made it a successful process.

“The College managed the whole recruitment process and presented us with good quality candidates to interview which saved us a lot of time and resources.

“We have been fortunate that Sasha has really thrown herself into the job role. She has really progressed and has taken on more responsibility.

“We plan to take on another Apprentice this year to do the work that Sasha is currently doing so she can progress to new projects such as planning weddings and managing the legalities.”

Sasha, 17, from Connah’s Quay, added: “I really enjoy doing hands-on work which is why I decided to do an Apprenticeship. It is a great idea as you combine gaining a qualification with working.

“I’ve really enjoyed my Apprenticeship and I’ve learnt so much from it. I’m delighted to get a permanent job with The Bridal Consultants and I would definitely recommend an Apprenticeship to other people as it is a great way to kick start your career.”
