Sink, tap and cooker hood manufacturer Franke has appointed two apprentices into the business, with Max Girdwood as marketing apprentice and Audley Key as warehousing apprentice.
Max Girdwood will be completing his L4 Marketing Executive Apprenticeship over the next 18 months and at the end of the qualification will be awarded a CIM Certificate in Marketing.
He comments: “I chose this apprenticeship as I realised that I had the wide range of skills and experience that the marketing team at Franke UK were looking for.
“The main reason I applied to the apprenticeship with Franke was because of the career development opportunities that this role will offer me.
“I am looking forward to working with experienced professionals in a very prestigious business.
“After completing my qualification, I hope to stay with the wonderful team at Franke and become an important asset in the marketing team.”
Audley Key who has joined the company as a warehousing apprentice and has completed his Level 2 Warehouse Operative Apprenticeship said: “As I have previous experience in the logistics industry, I felt that I would be a valuable member of the team here at central services.
“I am hoping that within a few years I will have progressed on from my apprenticeship role and gained more responsibility within the team.”
Over a number of years, Franke has supported apprentices, interns and work experience students who have gone on to become integral members of the team.
Sales and marketing director at Franke Jo Rawston commented: “We are delighted to have Max and Audley join the team and undertake their apprenticeships with Franke. We feel that apprentices are an important asset to the business as they bring in fresh new ideas and enthusiasm to their roles.
“We also feel it is great to be able to provide young people with the opportunity to start their career and earn a wage, whilst gaining their qualifications.”
Franke has recently expanded its customer care team with a trio of appointments.
