Lewis Boote joined DOORCO just over a year ago as an IT apprentice from Macclesfield College. On completion of his apprenticeship in October, we appointed Lewis as a full-time member of the team and we’re delighted to announce we’ve received notification from the college that Lewis has been nominated as IT apprentice of the year in recognition of his outstanding work, contribution to the business and for excelling in his learning.
Ben Aspinall, Lewis’ line manager comments: “We’re delighted that Lewis has received this nomination, it is truly well-deserved. Lewis has been nothing short of exceptional since joining DOORCO. Throughout his apprenticeship he demonstrated a great attitude to learning and was able to practically apply his education from college to his day-to-day role. He is diligent, well-organised and often demonstrates expertise years beyond a normal apprentice. His tutor said of the nomination: ‘I was blown away by his attitude, impeccable manners and organisational skills’.
“It was a no-brainer for permanently employing Lewis and he is now on a pathway to becoming a junior project co-ordinator and integral part of the Technology team, continuing to develop projects such as customer onboarding, digitalising stock and integrating scanpoint into our manufacturing processes. We wish him the very best of luck in the awards, which will take place early next year.
“Engaging an apprentice through Macclesfield College has been a great experience and something we are looking to continue as we look to further invest in and grow our team.”
