Celebrating our Apprentices

Celebrating our Apprentices
29 October 2019

Our People & HR goals underpin our ambitions as a business to help us achieve our vision to create a world where everyone can live sustainably.

One of the goals of our HR strategy is to optimise capability and skill, central to that is developing and retaining skilled and valuable employees.

With this goal in mind, we are pleased to announce that Elysia Osbourn and Alex Sampford who work in the Environmental Evidence & Data practice are coming to the end of their apprenticeships and have been promoted to Analyst Consultants as of the start of October. We want to celebrate their achievement and asked them what their apprenticeship with us offered them.

Alex Sampford

“I am delighted to have been offered a permanent role here at Ricardo. Over the duration of my apprenticeship I have learnt the necessary skills that are required in order to be successful in my career, whilst also making progress towards my academic qualification. I am looking forward to further expanding my skillset and applying this to my day to day work. Thank you for this opportunity and I look forward to see what the future holds.”

Elysia Osbourn

“There are many things that I have learned during my two years at Ricardo. Being an apprentice has meant that I’ve not only been lucky enough to work towards my qualification but, I’ve also gained the skills and knowledge I need to succeed at Ricardo. My confidence has grown enormously since starting in 2017 and this is due to the high level of support and guidance that I’ve received during this time. Thank you for the opportunity to further my career within the business, I am looking forward to the different prospects which the future holds.”

Congratulations to you both, we hope you enjoy a long and fruitful career with us.
