Connor Little has been shortlisted for Apprentice/Trainee of the Year at the 10th annual Northumberland Business Awards. This event showcases the brightest and best in the county’s business community and many top companies submit their trainees for consideration.
Connor is an apprentice inspector, now entering the final year of his training with Universal Wolf. He was recognised for his exceptional conduct and positive, ‘can do’ attitude. Connor continually strives for improvement in himself and in each team he has worked with. He has devised and introduced several new processes which have reduced errors and increased customer satisfaction. He has also been a willing mentor to other new apprentices, helping them understand their training plans and even assisting with coursework if they needed further support.
He was a popular choice as a nominee among his colleagues and it is clear that he would be an even more popular winner.
Ironically, he is competing against two apprentices from Universal Wolf’s sister company, Tharsus, for the honour. Rebecca Henry and Jack Thomas are also shortlisted for the prize, with the final two nominees representing Amble Pin Cushion, and Smailes Construction.
This triple listing is a great result for Tharsus Group and an endorsement of the quality of their apprenticeship schemes, which are carefully planned and managed to fit trainee’s needs.
Universal Wolf Director Peter Sayer said; “Connor is an absolute pleasure to work with and it comes as no surprise to us that he was shortlisted as one of the best apprentices submitted for this award. There would not be a more deserving winner and we all wish him the best of luck.”
The Northumberland Business Awards ceremony will be held at Linden Hotel, on Thursday 15th February.
