Bonnie Lloyd

8:58am 14th March 2016

It's the start of National Apprenticeship Week and Osprey Leisure Centre on Portland have added a new young member to their team.

20-year-old Bonnie Lloyd has started work there today as their new apprentice in Business Administration.

Bonnie has been working in retail at Debenhams in Weymouth since completing her Art & Design BTEC at Weymouth College in 2015, but applied to Osprey Leisure Centre when a business administration apprenticeship became available.

Bonnie Lloyd, Apprentice said "The Business Administration apprenticeship provides me with a general overview of business, business skills, customer service, social media and marketing.   I am very excited about starting my apprenticeship at Osprey".

Nigel Williams, General Manager of Osprey Leisure Centre said "We are looking forward to having Bonnie as part of our ever growing team. Bonnie's main role will be looking after customers, membership, promotions, social media and marketing. At Osprey Leisure the apprenticeship programme has had mutual benefits for both the young person and employer.  The skills and knowledge obtained through the apprenticeship programme is essential for career progression in the sports and leisure industry.  Osprey Leisure Centre currently employs 3 apprentices and the majority of current staff are either undertaking an apprenticeship or have been an apprentice with the organisation."
