    Encon Newcastle working with Barnardo's Palmersville Training

    15th September 2013

    Encon Newcastle is pleased to welcome Alex Bela as a new permanent member of the team following an impressive year as an apprentice with Barnardo's Palmersville Training.

    The team at Palmersville Training has been running successful learning programmes, for young people, for over 21 years. All members of staff are well qualified, competent and supportive and have many years of vocational experience to share with learners.  They offer support to help improve reading, writing and numeracy skills which can help gain a qualification and a work placement.

    This was the case with Alex, and after a years apprenticeship he was made a full-time member of the team last month.

    Getting used to the routine of working in a very busy office was challenging at the beginning, however with the support of Encon and Barnardo's Palmersville Training, Alex overcame these issues to become an invaluable member of the team.

    Ian Charlton, Branch Director of Encon Newcastle, said; “Alex joined us without any work experience and has proven to be an asset to our company, hence the reason to offer him full time employment on a  permanent basis. He is a credit to the Branch with his attitude, work ethic and his willingness to learn has been excellent.”

    Alex has continued to improve in his job role and carries out a wide range of tasks including, confirming deliveries, confirming stock, raising credit notes, dealing with queries, stock adjustments and expense numbers."

    Alex has enjoyed his Apprenticeship programme, saying; “Barnardo’s Palmersville Training have supported me and enabled me to progress in my career”.

    We hope you will join us in welcoming Alex to the Encon Group, and wish him success in his new role.

    As a company we are committed to developing talent and as such we are supporting a number of apprentices who are currently working with us.  Our plan in the future is to develop an Encon Academy Apprenticeship program to become market leaders and an Employer of Choice.
