Luke left school with good GCSE grades, but was uncertain what we wanted to do as a career. He was lead in the direction of a maintenance diploma at Eastleigh College, since most of his family worked in the trades, but he quickly realised this wasn’t for him.
He began working in a range of different roles, from a children’s play centre to Debenhams, but despite the fact he was earning money he realised that he wasn’t doing anything to improve his future prospects.
Luke had always liked the idea of going to work in a suit, so decided that Business Administration would be a good starting point into a career. He joined the College on Level 2 before progressing to Level 3, taking part in multiple work experience opportunities during the course. These included working for Red Funnel, and asset finance company Liberty Leasing Plc.
One year and 4 week’s work experience later, Luke was offered a full-time position as a Sales Administrator at Liberty Leasing. Within two years he had been promoted twice, and is now a Trainee Account Manager. His role involves liaising with brokers, signing up deals for the company all over the country.
