Harry Squires, a fourth-year HGV Technician apprentice based at RHCV’s Alfreton depot, has beaten apprentices around the country crowning him Commercial Motor Magazine’s Apprentice of the Year.
The annual event took place at the Vox conference centre, in Birmingham where leading commercial vehicle businesses came together to celebrate their successes and compete to claim prestigious awards.
The Apprentice of the Year Award recognises apprentices’ hard work and dedication in the business and celebrates their significant contributions in and out of the workplace.
Harry was nominated for going above and beyond his duties in the workshop and has become a shining brand ambassador by assisting with social media campaigns.
Harry commented, “Being Apprentice of the Year is such a great award. To even be nominated is amazing. It really gives me the incentive to work even harder and achieve the most I possibly can in my career.”
His Dealer Point Manager, Richard Bradbury, commented: “This award reflects Harry’s hard work every day. He is an asset to the workshop and business and always goes the extra mile.
“He is determined to exceed and better himself and always wants to help those around him.
“I am proud to have him on my team and look forward to seeing his career develop.”
In addition to the hard work at the depot, Harry has been a vital player in the drive to invite future apprentices into the business and industry.
Paul Pearson, Commercial Director of RHCV, commented, “After the dedication at local apprentice fairs and assisting with social media campaigns, no one is more deserving of this award than Harry. He really is a true ambassador of RHCV. Thanks to his enthusiasm, hard work and determination we really have seen an increased interest in apprenticeships for HGV Technicians,”
Nigel Baxter, Managing Director of RHCV, commented, “Harry is a shining example, he demonstrates the attitude and commitment we value so much. I hope this accolade gives him the determination to achieve the most from his apprenticeship and continue what I hope will be a fantastic career with RHCV.”
