Charlotte Hughes, an apprentice Logistics Manager with Berkeley, was named 'Best apprentice working in the supply chain or in schools' at London Councils' 2020 London Borough Apprenticeship Awards.
Now in their tenth year, the awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of apprentices working for London boroughs and their supply chains.
Mum of three, Charlotte, was nominated by Islington Council for her remarkable progress at Woodberry Down, and being a fantastic role model for women entering the industry.
She joined the council's introductory course for women and started work experience with Berkeley Capital last year. Her enthusiasm and drive quickly stood out and secured her a place on the award-winning REACH apprenticeship scheme.
Charlotte said "This is really a proud moment for me. I always knew that I wanted to work within the construction sector, and as a mum of three I wanted to achieve my goals to give my children a better life. I am so grateful for the support I've had during this amazing journey. My life has changed and I couldn't be happier."
Speaking about both award winners from Islington, business chief Cllr Asima Shaikh, said: "I am over the moon that Joseph and Charlotte's hard work and achievements are being celebrated and I am delighted that Islington Council's commitment and success in developing and promoting our apprenticeships programme has been recognised. Creating jobs and opportunity for all is a key part of our mission to make Islington a fairer place, and apprenticeships are a vital part of that."
