Paris Smith LLP has cemented the success of its apprenticeship programme by appointing Georgina Carr as Marketing Assistant following a successful 12-month business administration apprenticeship at the firm’s Southampton office.
Georgina became the firm’s first ever apprentice in March 2018, after graduating from Barton Peveril College in Eastleigh with a level three diploma in business studies achieving double distinction.
Since then, she has played a vital role in supporting Paris Smith’s marketing team.
Helen Freeston, Marketing Director at Paris Smith, said: “We are delighted to offer Georgina a permanent position. She has made the most of every opportunity given to her and become an integral part of our team over the last 12 months.
“The apprenticeship scheme has been invaluable for everyone. It has allowed Georgina to learn on the job and build important relationships with staff and clients alike, and enabled us to hire somebody who is already embedded in the team.”
Georgina added: “I am delighted to become a permanent member of the team here at Paris Smith, and look forward to applying everything I learned during my apprenticeship to my new role.”
Georgina’s apprenticeship was delivered by Southampton-based training provider Boom Training Ltd, which specialises in office-based apprenticeships for all ages across Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire and Dorset.
Following the success of Georgina’s apprenticeship, Paris Smith has committed to taking on further apprentices in the future.
