Wallasey teen lands permanent job thanks to apprenticeship

A teenager from Wallasey has landed his first permanent job, three months ahead of finishing his social media apprenticeship at The Juice Academy.

Rob Watts, 19, has been employed by Liverpool internet marketing agency, Ph Creative, after continually delivering impressive results since joining in July last year.

Rob is one of 10 apprentices from The Juice Academy’s first ever cohort of budding young social media stars, who were placed in North West businesses to learn on the job.

He said: “When I was told I’d got the job, I felt like everything had clicked into place – it’s amazing and I’m completely overwhelmed. I feel really lucky to have been supported so well from day one, by everyone I work with at Ph Creative, the tutors at The Juice Academy and of course, my parents.

“This is what I’ve been working towards since joining the company and now it’s a reality, I can’t quite believe it.”

The Juice Academy, the UK’s first employer-led social media apprenticeship, is committed to providing career opportunities to young people across the North West, just like Rob.
