A Double Celebration!
Jack Donovan, You First's Administrator, is enjoying a joint celebration. Jack has recently been successful in gaining his Diploma Level 3 in Business Administration and has also been awarded Apprentice of the Month Award by Somerset Skills and Learning.
Jack joined the You First team as an Apprentice and we have supported him through both his level 2 and 3 Diploma's. Jack has demonstrated real skill in analysing data and presenting this in graphical form. Jack keeps on top of the You First Business Performance Indicators and produces a monthly report for the CEO which details the Social Enterprises progress against these targets.
Jack acknowledged the support he has had from his You First Line Manager Steph Griffiths and his Somerset Skills and Learning Tutor Maggie Thornton.
Andy Robinson (You First CEO) said "Jack is a valued member of the You First family and has played a significant role in supporting me to evidence the social impact You First achieves in the lives of some of the most vulnerable adults in the South West. He has become a central part of our team"
