Apprentice of the Year nominee – Lucy Birks

Lucy Birks has worked at Stoke-based buildings facades company Benx for just a year but she’s already been called an invaluable asset to the team.

The 18-year-old is studying for a Level 3 HR Support Apprenticeship with CT Skills Training alongside her full-time role in the Benx HR team.

Danielle Preston, Head of HR, said: “Lucy is an open-minded, forward-thinking individual with a wise head on her shoulders. The practical exposure she has gained within the HR world shines through in everything she does.

“Her ability to apply herself to real-world scenarios is apparent to everyone who works with her. She offers sound advice, clear guidance and support, all with a smile on her face.

“I couldn’t be prouder of her progress and dedication, having overcome personal challenges during her time with us. She is an asset to our team and an all-around wonderful person”.

Lucy’s responsibilities include creating a monthly employee newsletter and she’s developing key skills in recruitment, employee engagement and event management.

She has been nominated in the Apprentice of the Year category of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.
