In his current role, Jamie has become an integral part of his team, using his initiative to work to a high standard as part of the Voids team. The team are responsible for scoping out void properties, assisting with the planning of workload and ordering materials.
“My dad is a floor-layer, so I was brought up messing around with his tools and developing an interest in his work,” Jamie said. The combination of experience in the workplace, sessions at Rotherham College and training courses offered by Fortem have given him a skillset and enthusiasm that has been recognised and awarded on several occasions.
As well as winning an RNN Training Apprenticeship Award, Jamie was also shortlisted for Fortem’s Young Persons Award for Customer Excellence, which was partly based on feedback received from tenants that Jamie has worked for.
Rebecca Mardell, Central Support Manager at Fortem praised Jamie’s ethos and contribution to the company; “Jamie makes a huge difference not only to the team he is in but also the communities in which our businesses work with. His commitment to being the best joiner he can be is extremely admirable.”
As he nears completing his Apprenticeship, Jamie will apply for a full-time position at Fortem, where he hopes to advance his profession.
