Meet our Apprentice of the Month – Oscar Lorimer


Oscar Lorimer, studying for a Level 2 Diploma in Business Administration, is the worthy winner of our latest Apprentice of the Month award.

Oscar, pictured above with manager Bryony Sexton receiving his certificate from his assessor, Hazel Rody, currently works for Bowers Partnership, a recruitment agency in Crowborough who work predominantly with clients in the Insurance and Asset Management sectors.

Oscar said: “I’d previously attended college, studying Business, Finance and Software development – and had come to the conclusion that I wanted to start earning, so an apprenticeship seemed the next logical path to take. I saw the role advertised on the government apprenticeships website and thought I’d be well-suited.”

“My role at Bowers has been very varied, involving speaking to experienced contractors and also doing some research into developing an app, and some additional features and functions to current software.”

Bryony Sexton, Contracts and Communications Manager at Bowers, who nominated Oscar for the award, said: “We’re only a small team here, but Oscar has really become a key part of it - and it’s been great to watch his confidence grow. The learning process has been mutual: he’s taught us a great deal technology-wise, which has contributed to useful time-savings. His award is really well-deserved.”
