A huge welcome to Ellie, our new apprentice from Howdon! She’ll be with us until September 2019 and hopes to become a longer term team member in the future.


How did you get the apprenticeship at Family Gateway?

“I was looking for a job to have alongside my Level 2 Business Administration I’m doing at Tyne Met College. The apprenticeship opportunity was advertised there, so I decided to go for an interview and luckily I was chosen for the job!”

What’s the best thing about working here?

“How comfortable I feel being here; I’ve fitted in well so far. The staff are all great and very friendly. I get on with everyone which really helps at work.”

What’s your role in the charity?

“I work on the Reception desk. I have the responsibility of signing people in, updating gym sheets, answering emails and telephone calls, and checking stock and stationery.”

What do you hope to get out of your apprenticeship?

“I hope to finish it with qualifications and a job for the future – I’d love to have a job with Family Gateway at the end of this.”

Ellie, 18, has made a very lovely addition to the team – we hope you’ll come in to the Hub to see her soon!
