Delight for Damian as teenager wins BPP Apprentice of the Year (Level 2) award!
A teenager has won a prestigious apprenticeship award – just a year after he first began his training.
Damian Nartowicz, 19, was crowned the BPP Apprentice of the Year (Level 2) Awards 2017 champion following his impressive and positive work attitude in his finance role at waste removal company Anyjunk Limited.
The accounting and business apprentice held off strong competition from PFS Investment Operations (IFDS) duo Leah Martin and Iris Prioux who received second and third prizes respectively.
“It feels great. I only got into accounting and business in 2016, so to win it in my first year is something special,” said Damian.
“I have enjoyed my time so far in business and finance and I hope it continues that way. It helps a lot that I’m working for a great company that believes in me.
“My family and friends were very proud I won and wish me every success in my career too. My Anyjunk Limited colleagues are the same and I’m grateful that they showed confidence in me by nominating me for the award. To win it for the company means an awful lot too.”
Damian said the award had given him the confidence to help pursue a long career in business and would be focusing on completing his accountancy qualifications and developing his skillset even further at Anyjunk Limited.
“I work with fantastic people and from the start they haven’t treated me like ‘the apprentice’. I just feel like I’m part of the team and that I’m having an impact on the business,” said the Sales Ledger Clerk.
“I can’t thank Anyjunk Limited enough for showing belief in me and that’s why I have enjoyed every single day I’ve worked there.”
