Galatia employees are top class
Two Galatia employees from Gainsborough have come out on top at a national awards ceremony.
Jordan Phillips, 18, walked away with the Apprentice of the Year title at Willmott Dixon’s Trade and Apprentice Achievement Awards which was held at The Pavillion in Birmingham.
Jordan, who is a second year plumbing apprentice, won the award for his outstanding work with Galatia and beat 60 other apprentices to scoop the prestigious award.
Alongside fellow Galatia employee Joshua Miller, who is a training mentor, Jordan also received an Outstanding Contribution to the Community award at the event. The two members of staff were rewarded for all the hard work and effort they have put in to their community projects and making a difference in the local community.
Jordan said: “I was delighted to receive the Apprentice of the Year award, I really wasn’t expecting it. I’ve always just tried to carry out my work to the best of my ability and do what I feel is expected of me. The support I get is fantastic and it’s a great environment to work in. It’s easy to perform well when I’m enjoying what I’m doing.”
Galatia Board Member Mick Williamson said: “Apprentices are our future and we need to continually invest in their development. We believe apprentices are great ambassadors and will grow the business in the future.”
