Stancold values having young apprentices as a part of our team. We believe that investing in the development of young talent is not only beneficial for them, but also for the growth of the business’ legacy.
Jessica, Stancold’s youngest team member works as a Sales & Marketing apprentice. Unlike the typical construction worker, she works in the marketing department and spends her day compiling data through LinkedIn, aids in content creation and helps generates new leads.
Since joining the business seven months ago, Jessica stated that as the company grew, so did the team. She said “The dynamic is positive and supportive, and I feel like I’m constantly learning and growing both personally and professionally. I’m excited to see where this experience takes me in the future.”
After leaving school, Jessica was unsure of her next move, but she ultimately found her passion in the marketing industry. She said, “Working within the marketing department has ultimately changed my perception on both self & corporate representation, and how the world revolves around promotion and advertisement. Without a unique portfolio directed at the right audience, your capacity is limited.”
Although she was not sure what to expect when she first started her apprenticeship, she has been pleasantly surprised by the experience. She said, “My role has not only taught me a completely new skill set but walking into my apprenticeship was nothing like I expected it to be.”
The unique nature of Jessica’s job often leads to confusion when she tells people what she does for work. “Whenever someone asks what I do for work I love nothing more than mentioning that I work in construction. 99% of the time the first assumption made is that I’m on a site in a hard hat and hi-vis, it’s hilarious witnessing the confusion as it always seems to throw everyone off!”
Jessica is excited to continue growing in her career and is proud to be a part of the Stancold team.
