We’re delighted to welcome Catherine Garside to the Penguin FM team, as Apprentice Sales & Marketing Co-Ordinator.
Catherine, aged 18, joins our Leeds-based head office team and her role will involve supporting our sales and marketing teams, whilst studying towards a Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship with Leeds City College.
The varied role will deliver an exciting and varied experience for Catherine, and her work will involve driving brand awareness through online marketing and PR, sales support for our clients and managing our social media channels.
Catherine says, “When I was studying my GCSE in Business Studies, I benefited from an insight into all aspects of the world of work, however, it was the marketing part that I really excelled in. Luckily, it was also what I enjoyed the most, which led me to consider a career within the industry.
I‘m thrilled to have joined the Penguin FM team and I am looking forward to supporting the team and developing all the necessary skills that will enable me to fulfil my career ambitions in the future.”
Edward Wick, Founding Director at Penguin FM adds: “Catherine is a fantastic addition to Penguin FM and is already playing an integral role within the office team (despite having just one day in the office with the team, before lockdown commenced!). What impressed us most about Catherine is her professionalism and determination to succeed – we have no doubt that she will prove herself to be a real asset. We’re a young but successful business and we’re determined to create much-needed opportunities for young people like Catherine, and see them thrive in the property industry. We hope to recruit more apprentices in 2021 to join Catherine in the office and our others working on site.”
Welcome to the team Catherine!
