Nestlé York Engineering Apprentice, Jordan Phillips (pictured centre), has scooped the ‘York Apprentice of the Year’ (aged 16-24) award at a ceremony in York Minster. The awards, held last week, were organised by The York Apprenticeship Hub, a City of York Council led partnership with training providers and the National Apprenticeship Service.
Facing stiff competition for the title from a wide variety of apprentices, including a York Minster stonemason, the judges were particularly impressed with Jordan’s personal passion of promoting apprenticeships externally.
Jordan has just completed his four year dual skilled engineering apprenticeship in York factory and now plays a key role in our AERO maintenance team.
He is a Food & Drink Federation National Apprentice Ambassador and has spoken enthusiastically with MPs in Westminster on the benefits of apprenticeships – as well as promoting the apprenticeship scheme at Nestlé at local events around York.
Having completed his Apprenticeship this summer, Jordan is now progressing to a fully funded engineering degree at Sheffield Hallam University, underlining Nestlé’s commitment to ensuring future talent grows to its full potential.
Nestlé UK Engineering Apprentice, Jordan Phillips said: “I am delighted and honoured to win the ‘York Apprentice of the Year’ Award. It really means a lot and the award has topped off a great year on my apprentice journey. I have found my apprenticeship to be really rewarding and I look forward to continuing my career at Nestlé."
