Award-Winning Apprentices

This year’s MPA Inspiration Awards celebrated the best brands and agencies across Greater Manchester. Now in its sixth year, the awards showcased the hottest talent in the creative sectors at the sell-out celebration dinner at The Midland Hotel, Manchester.

It was also a great night for four of our Juice Academy apprentices, Zain Sattar (Sharp Futures) Andrew Flynn (Pixel Kicks) Lydia Ward (BDB) and Imogen Gee (Seventy7) who were all nominated for the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award. Put forward for the award by their businesses, it’s fantastic to see the positive impact apprentices are evidently having in the workplace, and their efforts rewarded with this award nomination.

And the winner is….

Zain Sattar from Sharp Futures!

Massive congratulations to Zain, we are incredibly proud of him and his achievements at Sharp Futures. We have seen Zain’s confidence soar over the past year and winning this award is sure to contribute to that. Zain was of course elated to have won, commenting: “Winning the MPA ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award is a huge honour. It’s been a great year working at Sharp Futures who have really helped me develop personally and professionally and thanks also to The Juice Academy which gave me the fantastic opportunity to work at Sharp Futures.’

Furthermore, apprentices Andrew Flynn and Lydia Ward received ‘Highly Commended’ in the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ category, congratulations to the both of them also! We are so pleased all four of our Juice Academy apprentices have been acknowledged for their achievements in the workplace. It’s been a privilege to see them all progress throughout their apprenticeship, and we are certain they will all go on to achieve monumental success over the years to come.

Well done guys, you deserve it!!!
