Newry Chamber held their annual employee and team awards in the Canal Court. Over 150 applications were submitted for 21 categories, recognising the excellent work carried out within our local area.

Award sponsored by Southern Regional College and presented by Lee Campbell, Director of Finance & Planning at Newry Chamber Employee & Team Awards 2022 held at Canal Court Hotel & Spa, Newry.

Aaron Bradley a current SRC Higher Level Apprentice studying Digital Marketing, Advertising & Communication Apprentice won the Best Higher Level Apprentice Award, sponsored by Southern Regional College.

This was a highly competitive category, and the judges would have liked to recognise all entries due to their outstanding contributions to their employers. Aaron was commended by the judges on how quickly he learnt and adapted into his job with his employer Newry BID. Aaron managed their social media function, developed campaigns, and improved processes and reporting.

Higher Level Apprenticeships are an attractive alternative route to university, with Apprentices having a job from day 1. Apprentices attend college 1 day per week and are employed with a local employer 4 days per week, enabling them to become embedded within the business, grow and apply their learning from college in their place of work. Congratulations Aaron Bradley and thank you to Aaron’s employer Eamonn Connolly from Newry BID for his nomination.
