James Kenealey Apprenticeships
Congratulations to Janet Mottram from Morson’s aerospace recruitment division who was awarded Apprentice of the Year by Recruitment Juice.
Recruitment Juice is the recruitment industry’s no.1 fully gamified online learning provider. They offer over 60 courses, each offering a fun and innovative training path that combines video, interactive learning quizzes, advice from industry experts, downloadable documents, a stand-alone mobile app and a new performance centre to encourage and engage.
Janet follows in the footsteps of other recruitment apprentices from Morson who have been involved with the training organisation. In 2020, Morson's Charlie Moore went through his apprenticeship with Recruitment Juice and shared his thoughts on why it was the perfect course for him.
Upon presenting Janet with the award for 2021, Recruitment Juice commented:
“Janet was chosen as apprentice of the year because of her tenacity and resilience to learning and her ability to overcome numerous barriers. Janet had not studied since school 30+ years ago. As she did not have proof of her O-Levels, she was required to complete functional skills in Maths and English alongside the Recruitment Resourcer Standard.
This is Janet’s first role in aerospace and recruitment resourcing. She often found it hard to fit everything into her working day as she attempted to learn about a brand-new industry, the knowledge, skills and behaviours of a Recruitment Resourcer and also study for Maths and English. There were times when Janet found this stressful and could have easily admitted defeat, but she didn’t! She would turn up to her meetings every month, with a can do, positive attitude and she would put her all in to learning what she needed to succeed. Her resilience, determination and hard work paid off and she passed the Recruitment Resourcer Standard with a Distinction.
Her Mentor could clearly see how proud Janet was of herself every time she achieved a part of the qualification along the way and especially when she got the news that she passed her overall Recruitment Resourcer Standard with a distinction.”
Phil Evans, Associate Director within the aerospace team at Morson, said:
“Janet started working for the aerospace division in June 2018, having originally been brought on board to manage the GDPR call team that was set up to assist the business with getting candidates to accept GDPR. This was her first role in recruitment but adapted very well due to her call centre background and professional manner on the phone to both candidates and clients. She’s always eager to learn and happy to put her hand up for anything, even if its outside of her comfort zone. Her positive, can-do attitude got her over the line and this is reflected in her approach to work and why she is a great asset to my team.”
