Katie Andrews Marketing and Communications Manager

After completing her GCSE’s Katie was encouraged to stay on at school and achieve her A Levels. Her family and school were keen that Katie go to university but she wanted to follow her own path and applied for a commercial apprenticeship, with the aim of going into Sales and Marketing. She has now completed her Business Administration and Management qualification with Sheffield College and has recently been promoted to Marketing and Communications Manager at CBE+.

Initially Katie started her Apprenticeship with Liberty Steel and began her first placement in the Marketing Department where she was shadowing the Marketing Co-ordinator who on leaving the company handed responsibilities over to her. Here she became event manager for the Düsseldorf Wire trade show, including everything from designing the stand to organising the flights to measuring return on investment.

Katie won the Apprentice of the Year for Barnsley & Rotherham and was runner up for Made in Yorkshire Apprentice of the Year Award.

After spending several years at Liberty Steel, Katie made the brave decision to move companies to complete her apprenticeship and went to work for CBE+ where she is now the Marketing and Communications Manager and is considering university studies.

Katie says: “I have worked closely with The Work-wise Foundation for many years in both of my roles. I would never have been offered my job at CBE+ if it wasn’t for them, it has opened so many doors for me and I can’t wait to support them in the future like they have supported me in the past.”
