Holly's Apprentice Story


Holly under poco sign

Holly Westerside (pictured above) from Kirkby joined Poco Coffee as a Knowsley Apprentice in 2014.

During her 12 month apprenticeship Holly studied towards an NVQ Level 2 in Customer Services and NVQ Level 1 in Maths and English.

At the end of her apprenticeship, Holly was offered a full time position and is now studying towards a Retail Management Diploma.

As part of this course and her overall development plan with Poco Coffee, Holly is now acting as a Trainee Supervisor and mentoring another new starter.

Holly said: "Becoming an apprentice has been one of the best decisions I have made. I really enjoy working at Poco Coffee and I'm thrilled to be training as a supervisor for another member of staff and running the Kirkby store.

"If someone is thinking of applying for an apprenticeship I would say definitely do it. If you work hard and show you're enthusiastic, then it can open the door to so many more opportunities."
