2019 Winner

Leah Hurd

I’m nominating Leah for the Apprenticeship award. Leah has been in her role at Pure for over 3 years now, and in September 2017, Leah began her apprenticeship in Digital Marketing with Cambridge Regional College. Having not been in education for a long time, Leah put a lot of energy into the apprenticeship, which she did alongside her full-time job here at Pure. The apprenticeship gave Leah the skills and confidence she needed to grow into her and since completing it, Leah has made a number of changes in the business, including implementing full tracking across our systems, enabling her to analyse our customer behaviour data better. She works in a regional role across our four offices and always available to help the team with any Digital Marketing queries they may have. She is a champion for our brand and works tirelessly to ensure all the content we are putting out is of high quality. The apprenticeship has been a great experience for Leah and we cant wait to see what she will do next!
