Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Apprentices are part of the perfect blend at Leicestershire marketing company

Enderby-based Mocha Marketing's commitment to supporting apprentices looking to take their first steps into marketing, has seen the team shortlisted as a finalist in the 'Apprentice Employer of the Year' category in next month's Leicester Mercury 2018 Business Awards.


The company has always employed apprentices and is committed to giving them the best start to their career. Providing talented people the skills necessary to progress, apprentices at Mocha are given unique opportunities to kick-start their career in marketing with further opportunities to grow within the business.


Managing Director Gemma Orton said:

"It was through an apprenticeship that got me my first step on the career ladder and so when I launched my own business, it was always part of the plan to give back and invest in apprentices. Our apprentices have always been a hugely important part of what we do at Mocha. Each one we've brought in has shown great flair and enthusiasm not just for the work, but for taking their career to the next level. We're always excited to support apprentices along their journey with us and it's so rewarding when we see how much progress they make.  I would absolutely love for somebody who starts as an apprentice with us to eventually be on the Mocha board of directors. For me, that would be the biggest success story".


Mocha Marketing also believes that apprentices bring a unique perspective and businesses can learn immensely from their ideas. The company's own apprentices are continually given great responsibility, which gives them vital hands-on experience which will benefit them greatly in their future careers.


"Everyone at Mocha is so supportive of both apprentices and of each other,"

Gemma added.

"We aim to make Mocha a fun and collaborative place for apprentices to hone their skills and a lot of the time, the ideas and suggestions that they bring are the ones that make a significant difference."     


This will be Mocha's 6th finalist position amongst different awards in the last 2 years which is a reflection of how well the business is performing.


Mocha offer a range of marketing and communication services and act as an extension of their clients' team managing all aspects of marketing, PR and communication. From producing press releases, to social media management and digital marketing responsibilities, the business always works to the highest possible standard.
