12th September 2016 | posted in News
Three years of hard work have paid off for Amy Jones after she became the second apprentice to be permanently employed by a housing association
Soon after passing her NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration, 21-year-old Amy was given the good news that she was being offered a full-time job with Railway Housing Association.
Based at the Association’s head office in Darlington, Amy is generally the first person people talk to when they call, or pop into, the office in Garbutt Square, just off Neasham Road.
Amy, who lives in Middleton St George, has also helped with the administration of events, including the Association’s annual residents’ conference in York.
She said: “I have really enjoyed my three years here but I knew there was no guarantee of a full-time job when my apprenticeship came to an end.
“So, I was absolutely delighted when I was told they wanted to keep me on permanently, it is awesome!
“I have learned so much while I have been here and I now hoping to be able to get further qualifications in housing and progress within the Association.”
Anne Rowlands, Chief Executive of Railway Housing Association, said: “We started offering apprenticeships in 2010 and Amy is now the second person we have been able to offer a permanent role too.
“She is bright, hard-working and keen to learn new skills, so we are delighted to have been able to keep her on board at Railway.”
