Business Apprenticeship has Ben buzzing
A local marketing company is buzzing after taking on a Business Apprentice from Huntingdonshire Regional College.
Ben Evans was recruited by Local Buzz Marketing in January as part of their business plan and he is already making a significant impact.
Jon Orchard, Director of Local Buzz, explained: “We wanted to be able to train someone to work in the way that we do here at Buzz.
“It was very important for us to take on someone who was fresh in mind and had no previous training, or had picked up any bad habits elsewhere.
“We have long term plans for everyone at Buzz.”
In his short time with the company, Ben has designed new websites for new clients while learning new skills and developing those further to work on a project independently.
Jon added: “Ben has been a great addition to our team – he has a strong desire to learn and enjoys designing and developing.”
Ben looks after the social media channels for a group of clients, updating them with engaging news stories.
He also writes regular content articles are featured on the client website and then shared across their social media channels.
Jon said: “As a direct result of Ben’s creativity, energy and attention to detail we have won our clients’ new business with content marketing, social media marketing and design.
“The way in which Ben has progressed in a short space of time has not only given us confidence to let him take control of certain projects but also it gives us time to look at winning new business.
“Ben’s own development has allowed the business to develop.”
Ben has extensive experience in digital marketing at Local Buzz, from web design and graphic design to social media marketing and content marketing.
He will now begin to spend time with our clients and start to learn more about customer service, project deadlines, client expectations and business relationships.
Jon added: “I think the Apprenticeship scheme is so important.
“It gives great opportunities to young career minded people and it helps local businesses to grow.
“Ben is now a key player at Local Buzz Marketing, a great team player and important to our future plans as a business.”
