Lucy Preston joins MP Awards

A warm welcome to Lucy Preston who joined MP Awards earlier this week as a VQ Assistant Administrator. Lucy will be with MP Awards on a one year placement whilst undertaking her Level 2 Business Administration Apprenticeship. She will be based in the VQ office alongside Ruth, John and Sarah and will be working 08:30 - 17:00, Monday to Friday.

Here's what Lucy has to say...

"Hi everyone, I’m Lucy! I live at home with my parents, 2 dogs and a cat within a 15 minute walk of MP House. My Border Collie dogs keep me on my toes and are pretty crazy!

I originally went to college for a year to study Photography, however I quickly realised that I liked it more as a hobby than as a potential career so I quit and went to do a retail apprenticeship for a year at a photographic shop. After a year I moved on to join Robin Hood Energy as a Customer Service Assistant in the call centre. After 3 months of working on the phones and 1 month of working as a temporary admin for the Complaints Team, I decided that I wanted a new challenge! This is when I decided to jump into a Business Administration apprenticeship - and how I came to join MPQC!

In my spare time I like to draw, read, play games and bake. Baking is a more recent interest of mine, so you’ll be sure to be treated to something sweet at some point! My boyfriend and I also occasionally go jive dancing with either his family or mine - which strangely enough is how we met! My boyfriend lives in Leicester so you will often find me travelling over there at the weekends. So every now and then on a Friday you might see me with a backpack looking like I'm about to go hiking!

In terms of my my new role, I am really looking forward to progressing my career here at MPQC, as well as getting to know everyone! I also look forward to gaining my apprenticeship qualification and potentially further employment within the business after my year's placement."

Welcome to the team Lucy!
