“After completing a Marketing Apprenticeship with Truro and Penwith College, I have now been offered a full-time marketing position with one of Cornwall’s top manufacturers, WISKA UK Ltd.” Chloe, from Bodmin, created and coordinated a marketing campaign to increase sales in a popular range for the company which was so successful the company is looking to repeat it in the future.
WISKA UK’s Marketing Manager said: “One of our buying groups has also named us "Supplier of the Year"- partly down to Chloe's marketing work- promoting our core values and honesty as a business.
”Why did I choose this option?
