New apprentice placement for FM

The Facilities Management team has created its first apprentice role as part of the University’s apprenticeship scheme.

Internship Beatie Kirkby has joined the Messengers team on a two-year placement, studying for a diploma in Business Administration. Beatie’s training is provided by Activate Learning (part of the City of Oxford College) and Mail Services Assistant, Hollie Clark, is working with her as coach and mentor throughout the placement, supported by Central FM Services Manager, Sarah King and Clive Shepherd, the University’s Apprenticeship Manager.

Sarah King comments: 'The support from Clive and the training provider throughout the recruitment and induction processes has been excellent, and working with Beatie on her qualification and professional development is also giving our staff the opportunity to develop their own skills in coaching and leadership.’
