Varley Group wishes to congratulate employee Joel Burgess on his nomination for Apprentice of the Year 2015.
Joel has been invited to attend an interview for the award nomination next week, which Joel says has given him a “huge confidence boost, knowing that I’m succeeding”.
Reflecting on his apprenticeship, Joel said that “a trade has always been a goal of mine” and that during his time with Varley he has “learned safety operations, various machine use and drawing interpretation”, as well as “personal skills like learning not to rush and taking time to achieve good work results”.
Joel also noted that his team members at Varley Group are “very friendly and helpful towards me and the other apprentices, helping us out when in need and giving tips”.
One particular project that Joel enjoyed was being there “through the ups and downs” of a recent ambulance vehicle build, and that “seeing the product being completed and sent away was satisfying”.
Joel also wishes to thank Varley Group Production Supervisor Brett English for nominating him for the award, and is “looking forward to being a full member of the team” at the end of his apprenticeship.
Well done Joel!
