Oxfordshire Apprenticeships Ambassador Luke Mullan, who works for leading electrical contractor Clarkson Evans, has been named as a finalist in the prestigious Electrical Industry Awards.

Clarkson Evans nominated Luke for the “Electrical Apprentice of the Year” award as he is a first class electrical apprentice who has positively embraced his role as an Oxfordshire Apprenticeships Ambassador.

The Electrical Industry Awards, organised by the Electrical Times, are the longest running and most respected awards championing excellence across the electrical industry.

Luke will discover whether he has won the award when he attends a glittering awards ceremony at The Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington, on Thursday 29 October 2015.

Melanie Ringer, Skills Officer at Oxfordshire Apprenticeships, said: “Luke is full of enthusiasm for his role and for apprenticeships in general and is really keen to share his experiences with other young people to help them make an informed career choice.”

“Luke is an inspirational role model for young people who may be considering an apprenticeship. He is honest and easy to relate to. He clearly enjoys both working for Clarkson Evans and his apprenticeship, which shines through when he is talking about his experiences. I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with him as an Apprenticeship Ambassador.”

All electrical apprenticeshere at Clarkson Evans are trained in-house at our own training centres. Despite operating in an industry that was hit hard by the recession, we have been steadily expanding in the last five years and now have 17 branches nationwide, including our Kidlington branch in Oxford

“It’s only by employing apprentices and training them in-house that we’ve been able to develop a dedicated workforce with the right skills,” said Steve Evans, Managing Director.

“We always look for people who are keen to forge long-term careers with Clarkson Evans and many previous apprentices have grown with the company, taking on more responsibility and helping us maintain high levels of customer service as we continue to expand.”

We’ve recently launched an extensive recruitment drive for more apprentices in Oxfordshire. Current vacancies can be viewed at
