Yorkshire Wolds brewery creates new apprenticeship roleTue 30th May 2023
A Wold Newton family brewing business has created a new apprenticeship role in its admin team to support its growing business.
Josh Pickard from Bridlington has joined the team at Wold Top Brewery as Office Administrator and is combining work at the brewery whilst studying for a Level 3 Business Administrator Apprenticeship qualification at Craven College in Skipton.
Wold Top Director, Kate Balchin, said: "We're delighted to welcome Josh to the team. It is the first time that we have taken on an apprentice, and we're happy with the contribution that Josh has made in a short space of time.
"Apprenticeships are a great way to acquire skills whilst learning on the job. For Josh, he's earning whilst he's learning, and for us, we have someone who is acquiring valuable skills that he can build on to progress his career."
"I'm really enjoying working with the team at Wold Top. I've found it very easy to fit in and get along with everyone, and this has also allowed me to learn and pick things up quickly and work with confidence. My responsibilities include dealing with orders and queries from customers online and over the phone, logistics for supermarkets and trade customers, plus other administrative tasks," said Mr. Pickard.
When he's not working, Mr Pickard enjoys going to the gym and watching sports.
