JLL Cardiff office’s apprentice makes a great impression

Hannah Colston is working for JLL whilst studying a BTEC Level 3 in Construction

CARDIFF, 23 June, 2016 –  Hannah Colston, an apprentice working at JLL in the Cardiff office, is from Deri in Caerphilly County Borough and attends the Coleg y Cymoedd Nantgarw campus for one day a week.

Hannah ColstonHannah Colston Apprentice Industrial & Logistics at JLL Cardiff said: “I am currently undertaking a two year apprenticeship at JLL, whilst studying one day a week at the Coleg y Cymoedd Nantgarw campus. Whilst at the college, I am working towards achieving a BTEC Level 3 in Construction and the Built Environment. I have just finished my first year of the course and have been predicted to achieve a Distinction star grade.

The knowledge that I have gained from my course, coupled with my practical experience from work, has allowed me to become a competent apprentice within the surveying industry.”

Chris Sutton, Lead Director at JLL Cardiff said: “We have enjoyed a strong working relationship with Coleg y Cymoedd, as we created our first apprenticeship post in Cardiff.  Professional services firms have not traditionally appointed apprentices however our experience has been a good one with Hannah making a positive contribution to our business.”
“The introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy is intended to become a driver for the creation of further apprenticeships and I would encourage professional services firms affected by this levy to actively explore this option.”
