Meet the Apprentices: Rosie Staniford

‘Willerby feels like one big family already – I felt at home straight away’

 

Name: Rosie Staniforth

Age: 21

From: Hedon

Qualification: Level 3 Business Administrator Apprenticeship, completed over 18 months.

 

Rosie said: “I lived in Spain for 14 years and played football at local league level before I was asked to try out for the Spanish young women’s league, but I fell ill and needed an operation on my heart.

 

“I came back to Hedon three years ago and I have a three-year-old son, Joel. Before securing my apprenticeship at Willerby, I worked in a call centre but I didn’t enjoy it.

 

“Hull Business Training Centre recommended I applied for this apprenticeship because I wanted to go down the Business Administrator route and this role covers customer service and sales. We’ll focus on a different area every six months.

 

“I’d love to build my career at Willerby. Here it’s like one big family and I felt at home straight away. This is such a great opportunity for me and it’s brilliant to start something new.”
