After Chloe spent a week with us in 2017 and subsequently demonstrating her eagerness to kick start her career in digital marketing she seemed the natural choice as the business continues with its ambitious growth plans.

Chloe added: “I knew very early on that the apprenticeship route was for me having undertaken a number of work placements while at high school. These placements enabled me to identify which subjects to study at A-Level to give me the best possible chance of starting my career in digital marketing. Having spent a week with the team in 2017 I was extremely excited to see an opportunity available with KC Communications. Following my appointment, I have had the opportunity to get stuck in with daily activities. With everything going on in the world right now, I am very grateful to be sitting here today pursuing the start of my dream career, whilst earning and learning. For me, this was the right decision and I hope I can inspire other individuals that these amazing opportunities are out there if you work hard and keep looking”.
