Amy Kear, 19, has only been with the company CMToolkit for five months but she is already making her mark.
Amy has developed a strong understanding of the Cheltenham business' administration and its product CEMAR.
And now she has entered the Apprentice of the Year category (financial and business services) in the Gloucestershire Echo and Gloucester Citizen's Apprenticeship Awards.
CMToolkit has developed "software as a service" with CEMAR providing flexible administration for the demands of the construction industry.
Amy, of Ruardean Hill, Forest of Dean has developed a strong working relationship with the company's clients and her involvement in accounts has enabled her to focus on her career aim of becoming an accountant.
She worked with CMToolkit business manager Rachel Hossle to develop a new process for the company's quality management system and has developed her communication skills, becoming more confident.
She has already been promoted and is now an integral part of the company.
It is very easy to enter the Apprenticeship Awards but don't delay – the closing date is April 25. Visit gloucestershireecho.co. uk/apprenticeship or gloucestercitiz en.co.uk/apprenticeship for details.
