First apprentice for INPD.

Teenager Chloe McDaid has begun an apprenticeship in business administration which will see her work across all departments.

Training provider Alliance Learning is working with us to deliver the programme.

Director Dave Hall says: “We are committed to developing our own talent while also bringing in experienced professionals as we look to continue our rapid growth.

“Chloe is a confident and highly-motivated individual who is proving to be a tremendous team player. We are sure she will make an excellent contribution to the business while gaining valuable experience.”

Eighteen-year-old Chloe, an award-winning judo brown belt from Hindley, said: “I heard about the apprenticeship at a college careers convention and, not knowing what university course I wanted to do and seeking real world experience across a range of business areas, I jumped at the chance to join INPD.”

Kelly Perkin, chief executive of Alliance Learning, said: “We are extremely pleased to be working with INPD on the development of our next generation.

“It’s great to see local companies giving young people an opportunity to undertake an apprenticeship.”

Meanwhile we are delighted to welcome two other recruits to the team.

Rebecca Highton, has joined as an event coordinator. Rebecca was previously an event planner at Salford’s Lowry Hotel.

Her role at INPD is to ensure the smooth running of its courses across the UK.

Mike Johnson has joined our sales team from Salford Professional Development as an executive education consultant, helping to build customer relationships and drive revenue growth.

Dave said: “Rebecca and Mike have strong track records of success in their respective specialist areas and are great additions to the team.”
