Procure Plus Trainee Scoops Top Industry Award
We’re proud to announce that former Procure Plus trainee, Rachel Howarth, was presented the judges’ special award for outstanding contribution to the construction industry at the Building and Engineer Awards last night (19 November 2015).
Rachel originally trained in childcare, but decided on a career change after being made redundant from her job as a nursery nurse.
During her re-training, Rachel was supported by Procure Plus with training, free driving lessons and even helped her get an interview at Oldham building and refurbishment company Emanuel Whittaker – the company she still works for today.
Commenting on the award, Mike Brogan, chief executive of Procure Plus, said: “It’s a huge achievement for Rachel and one that is absolutely deserved. Alongside the rest of the team of Procure Plus, I’ve had the pleasure of mentoring Rachel during her training and it was clear then, as it is today, that she takes her work very seriously. She’s a shining example to young people in the construction industry.”
