Eager staff gain qualifications with company backing
Ten percent of our employees have recently undertaken Diplomas, NVQ Awards and other qualifications in work related subjects through local colleges, with company support.
Key Account Manager David Pritchett, from Daventry, said, “I was new to this company when they offered me the opportunity to study for a diploma in Customer Service. It was the first chance I’d had in a long time to take part in external training and earn a qualification, so I took it.
“The support The NX Group gave me and my colleagues was fantastic; they allowed us time out of our working day to complete tasks, assignments and attend meetings, while also covering course administration – setting meetings, reminders and posting schedules for all sessions.”
David gained a Level 2 Diploma in Customer Service, while progressing from Key Accounts Clerk to Key Accounts Manager within the company.
His colleagues Heather Hancock, Petru Cegolea, Lewis Wright and Nicolae Crecea all gained Intermediate Level Apprenticeships in Warehouse Operations, City & Guilds Level 2 Awards in Employee Rights and Responsibilities in the Logistics Industry and City & Guilds Level 2 Certificates in Warehousing and Storage.
Other staff members Colin Harvey and Jo Lawlor gained an Intermediate Level Apprenticeship in Warehouse Operations and a CMI Level 2 Diploma in Team Leading respectively.
Managing Director Neil Powell said, “I’m thrilled so many of our full time employees, around ten percent of our workforce, have successfully gained these qualifications, and would like to offer all of them my congratulations.
“As a growing firm, we encourage our staff to take steps to expand their working knowledge and job skills, and support them where appropriate.”
