Welcoming Faith to the team.

We are delighted to have recently welcomed Faith to our growing team, joining us in an apprenticeship role. Faith will be based in the office and in her role as a Junior Business Administrator, she will provide vital support to the team internally. Alongside administrative tasks, Faith will be answering the telephone and welcoming guests, so please do give Faith a very warm welcome. 

Jack Crawford, Assistant Manager here at Beninca UK and Faith’s designated mentor, commented ‘It’s fantastic to have another young apprentice join our team. Faith impressed us in her initial interview being extremely professional and displaying great customer service skills, so we were delighted when Faith accepted the job offer. I am looking forward to watching Faith learn new skills and grow into her role over time.’

In her spare time, Faith enjoys trying to train her dachshund puppy who is very misbehaved, she also loves shopping and going out to eat with her friends. Faith studied at Kennet School, and during her secondary years had a few part-time jobs, including working at a salon and then a restaurant.  Faith commented “Sixth Form just wasn’t for me and I began to look for an apprenticeship which is how I first discovered Beninca. Since starting at Beninca, I feel happy with my decision to leave school, I really enjoy the tasks of my job role, whether it’s organising or invoicing, to emails or creating spreadsheets. The team here are a very lovely, genuine group of colleagues that couldn’t have been more welcoming. I’m really fortunate that I’ve joined a company that I feel will help me with my future targets of getting into marketing.”

General Manager Jamie Berry said “We are so pleased to be able to offer another apprenticeship position and support local young workers in building career paths. Alex is an impressive young man, mature beyond his years and I’m thankful for the help he has already provided internally in what has been an incredibly busy period for the company.”

In his spare time, Alex enjoys playing both rugby and football at the weekends and keeps fit going to the gym throughout the week. 

When asked if he has settled into his new role, Alex confirmed “I am loving it at Benincà, everyone’s lovely and have given me such a warm welcome” we are delighted to have you on board!

A warm welcome to Sam…

We feel privileged to be in a position of expanding our team and are delighted to announce that Sam Weedon has recently joined us as Sales Administrator.

Sam studied Economics, Business, and Maths for A-Level whilst at Kennet School in 2019 and is currently completing a Level 3 Customer Service Specialist apprenticeship with The West Berkshire Training Consortium. Once again, we are proud to support The West Berkshire Training Consortium, with Sam now being our third apprentice to join Benincà UK via the scheme.

Sam brings with him so much enthusiasm and has impressed the entire team immensely with the rate at which he has already picked up product knowledge. Joining the company at an unusual time hasn’t deterred Sam, but rather allowed him to showcase his resilience and adaptability.

Outside of work, Sam is a keen rugby and football fan, supporting Arsenal, and loves nothing better than watching a good movie.

As it stands, we are not sure when you will have the pleasure of meeting Sam in person, but in the meantime, please do join us in giving Sam a warm welcome, whether that be over the telephone or email, as he settles further into his role and learns the world of Automation.
