Once again Mid Sussex Golf Club is leading from the front by employing two more apprentices through the government backed scheme.

Recently, Josh Watson ‘sales administrator’ completed his one year apprenticeship, and has been employed by the club.

“At first the role and job responsibility were pretty demanding, but Josh fitted well and was able to show the skills necessary to complete the tasks,” commented general manager Andrew Smith.

“He has learned a huge amount about the business and can now competently book, organise and run members events, group golf days, large charity days, as well as all the day to day running of sales and administration.”

With the success from this, the club have decided to seek further ‘pipeline’ employment areas, and now, two new apprentices are working within the kitchen, bar and restaurant. They will take an exam next year and will also achieve a level 2 NVQ in the respective areas.

“It is so important to invest in these staff, which will hopefully one day become the next face of the Club. To see their careers develop, learn new social skills and to be part of their working life journey, is extremely rewarding,” Andrew comments.
