Longworth Building Services were very impressed with graduate, Charlottle Brown after completing the programme and have offered her a permanent position in the business.

Claire Cahill, Officer Manager at Longworth, said: “When Charlotte first came to Longworth for her interview she came prepared with a portfolio about the business, we were very impressed that she’d obviously done her research.

“Coming from the Chamber we knew she would be well prepared, have a degree and be educated to a high level.

“I’d be lost without her, she’s done a fantastic job. From day one there was never any question as to whether we’d keep her on at the end of the six months.

“It was clear I wanted her to stay and progress, there was never a doubt in my mind or the Managing Director’s mind about offering her a permanent position.”
