Ally attends Wigan & Leigh College’s annual Apprentice Awards

Ally had an excellent night celebrating all the hardworking apprentices and their employers with Wigan & Leigh College. The event was hosted by TV presenter and magician Ben Hanlin, (who, by the way, definitely did an apprenticeship at Hogwarts!) accompanied by a lovely meal and great company!

We’re chuffed to bits for Jess, and for our small team. It’s great recognition of Jess’ hard work, and of the work we’ve put in together to grow our own talent, benefiting - of course - our brilliant clients. Congratulations Jess (& Team Ally!)

Digital Marketing Apprentice Jess Barlow comments:

“I was over the moon when I received the letter informing me that I had been awarded Digital Marketing Apprentice of the Year by Wigan & Leigh College.

I want to give a massive thank you to my manager, Vicki, for teaching me plenty of skills on and off the job, and being patient whilst doing so, as well as being an all-round role model to me. Thank you to my tutor, Andrew, and of course the rest of the team at Ally - I couldn’t have done it without you all! The past 18 months have flown by and with my apprenticeship coming to an end I can't wait to progress further in my career at Ally Marketing.”

Marketing Manager Victoria Gregson comments:

“We were really pleased to hear that Jess had been awarded Digital Marketing Apprentice of the Year by Wigan & Leigh College. Reflecting her efforts over the course of her apprenticeship, Jess has brought something new to Ally and our clients this year and we’re looking forward to seeing how her marketing career progresses in the future!

Thank you to Wigan & Leigh College for their support and guidance for Jess, and for inviting us to the really enjoyable awards ceremony this week.”

Why choose a marketing apprenticeship?

We asked Jess why she reckons a marketing apprenticeship is the way forward in our industry. She says:

 

"You'll gain the most up-to-date training and have the opportunity to apply these skills to the real world by becoming a marketing apprentice. Learning on-the-job comes with many benefits, including ongoing support from your employer, building relationships with your clients and gaining high-quality work experience."

Not sure where to start?

Get yourself some work experience first to try it out in the real world. Are you comfortable in an office? Can you work to a deadline? Are you good at collaborating and working with others? Are you confident to speak to clients and colleagues and to promote your ideas? Are you interested in design and/or the written word? Explore creative or marketing apprenticeships near you!
