Just the job

Tuesday 4th June 2013

One young person has gone on a journey to remember with Charlton Athletic Community Trust, which has resulted in full time employment.

After paying a visit to her local Job Centre, Millie Allen, now aged 20, decided to pursue Business Administration. The Job Centre recommended Millie to MiddletonMurray who are a Sidcup based recruitment agency, and a Patron of the Trust.

The Job Centre then sent Millie to MiddletonMurray for a month’s extensive training on basic business administration and general office skills. 

Through their partnership, MiddletonMurray and the Trust aim to work together to help develop the lives of young people. Millie was invited to attend an interview with the Trust, and beat off competition from 13 other candidates to earn the full-time apprenticeship.

Having started in May last year, Millie’s role has involved collating data and generally monitoring the Greenwich Youth Service, which the Trust was commissioned to deliver in April last year.

Last month Millie was awarded for her excellent work with a full time contract and the job title of Administration Support Officer for the Greenwich Youth Service and Social Inclusion.

This process has only been possible due to the existing partnership with MiddletonMurray as a proactive patron of the Trust.

Millie Allen, said, “I am honoured to have been given a year full time contract with the Trust. It is a great company to work for and to be involved with the marvellous work they do for the young people in Greenwich. I have settled in very well with staff, the club and partners. I would like to thank Matt Horne, Stacie Dennington, Marc Leckie, the Greenwich Youth Service and all of the staff at the Trust for supporting me through my apprenticeship. I feel I have learnt a lot over the past year as I did not have any knowledge or skills in admin before I came. I now feel that I am able to continue improving by working for the Trust.”

Matt Horne, Greenwich Youth Service Partnership Manger, added, “Millie has a very friendly personality and has settled in superbly within the Trust, its partners and staff at the football club in general. She has worked very hard throughout her year as an apprentice. Millie has a fantastic work ethic and I am delighted with her progress. She fully deserves the full time contract she has been given and I am confident she will go from strength to strength. I would also like to thank MiddletonMurray and the Royal Borough of Greenwich for supporting us and Millie in her apprenticeship and progress.”
