This year CEMEX UK were awarded the Apprentice of the Year Award and Tanker Safety Award. It was great to see Emily Luff from our Lincoln operation pick up the Apprentice of the Year Award – Emily recently graduated with our HGV Driver Apprentice Scheme and now drives a 32 tonne tipper truck delivering Aggregates and Asphalt.
She is our first woman tipper driver apprentice in CEMEX UK and has been a great ambassador for bringing more women into the logistics sector. She passed her HGV test first time and we have seen her flourish and grow in both confidence and skill set and become a safe and proficient driver of heavy trucks and clearly enjoys her job. She has become an asset to the team and a role model for future potential applicants.
Emily said she was shocked but delighted to win the Award both for herself and other young aspiring drivers. Carl Milton commented: “It was a great achievement for Emily and all this year’s apprentices, great recognition for the work and commitment going into to develop young people and talent in the company.”
