Here at Skout we have recently appointed our first PR apprentice as we look to expand further in 2015. Katherine Wilding has just joined us following her work experience in a PR and marketing role with Adactus Housing Group in Lancashire. She also recently completed her ‘A’ levels last year at The Fallibroome Academy in Macclesfield.
The apprentice scheme is overseen by the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA) which means Katherine can work towards a Level 4 Diploma in Public Relations, with the added bonus of first-hand experience on the job.
Katherine will offer valuable administrative and PR support to the Skout team. She comments: “I am delighted to join Skout and gain first-hand experience of the PR sector. Through the PRCA’s apprentice scheme and the opportunity to learn on the job I’m looking forward to a really good start on my career in PR.”
MD, Rob Skinner said: “2015 has already been a busy and exciting time and I’m delighted to introduce new staff to our team as we celebrate our fifth year as Skout. At the end of last year, we took on a PR graduate and now Katherine is the latest recruit to join. We’re looking forward to teaching Katherine the ropes and seeing her grow into a first-class PR consultant.”
Katherine Wilding is Skout’s newest recruit and a PR apprentice.
