Another apprentice has made the grade at Wiltshire’s leading heating company John Williams Heating Services.

Georgina Williams, aged 22,  who lives in Chippenham, now works as the office manager at the company which is run by her parents John and Debbie. Georgina has studied and worked for two years to attain a Level 3 Diploma in Business Administration.

She said: “It has been a long journey and a very worthwhile experience. I have gained a much wider knowledge of business and a wealth of experience whilst also studying at the same time.

Georgina is one of five apprentices currently employed within the team at John Williams Heating Services which is based on the Bumpers Farm Industrial Estate.

Debbie Williams, co-founder of the company, is passionate about promoting apprenticeships to young people as an important route to a successful career.

Debbie said: “Apprentices are such valuable members of our team and it’s amazing to be able to see them grow and mature in knowledge and experience. Georgina has brought so much to us too – from fine-tuning our processes through to teaching us many aspects of efficient administration.

“It’s not just about what we can do for an apprentice, it’s equally about what they can do for us.”

Georgina now plans to go on to study Accountancy Level 3 with the Association of Accounting Technicians and wishes to become a fully qualified accountant.

“I’ve realised I enjoy working with numbers so I’m excited to be able to go on and gain more qualifications and knowledge.”
