Apprentice spotlight: Emma Bowen

This National Apprenticeship Week, you’ll meet some of our top apprentices and discover their perspective on undertaking an apprenticeship with Pickfords.

First off is Emma Bowen, European Move Manager and Apprentice:

“I’d recommend an apprenticeship to anyone. It’s given me the chance to get experience in the workplace and a foot in the door at a great company.

What I like most about Pickfords is that we work so well together as a team and you feel that support is always there. The Pickfords name is instantly recognisable because it has such a long history and a good reputation and it’s nice to be part of that.

I really enjoy my job, especially because it’s so satisfying to oversee everything from beginning to end. You get to build up a good relationship with customers.”

Pickfords’ West London customers have together raised £4,596 for the NSPCC through clothes collections!

Customers are offered a free collection service to fill collection bags with their unwanted clothes and paired shoes on move day. Clothes Aid, the UK’s leading clothing collection fundraiser, turns the goods into funds for the NSPCC.

Pickfords have been tracking clothes collections for the last 12 months, and can confirm that West London have raised the most funds in that time, from 11 tonnes of clothes donations.
