Award-winning Pallet-Track member Aztek Logistics has taken on its first apprentice in its 20 years of business.
Transport administrator Emily Palmer has started a 14-month business administrator level 3 apprenticeship at King’s College, Cambridge and will be tasked with researching and implementing a customer relationship management (CRM) solution for the Letchworth Garden City-based business.
Emily has always had an interest in further education and started working in the logistics sector in 2020. She joined FORS Gold-accredited Aztek in March 2021, which has supported her to embark on the qualification.
Emily said: “I wanted to undertake this qualification because I have always liked learning and, for a long time, have wanted to do something that would enable me to progress further in my career. This apprenticeship is something that will allow me to do this.
“Aztek has been fantastic with my apprenticeship. We went through the different course options together before coming to a joint decision on the business administrator course, after which they happily put my name forward.
“I know I’m going to enjoy learning more about the sector and improving my knowledge on a range of different subjects. I think I’m most looking forward to learning about legislation and laws relating to my role.”
Stuart Charter, managing director of Aztek Logistics, said: “We were really happy when Emily came forward and shared her goals of further education with us.
“Working together, we were able to find the perfect apprenticeship for her that will not only help her flourish in her career but help us as a business thanks to her growing knowledge of the sector.
“We know that she will do brilliantly in this next step and we will continue to help her in any way we can throughout this qualification. We hope the investment in Emily’s apprenticeship is just the catalyst for what we hope to be many more apprentices in the coming years.”
