Nicole joined the KC team last November under the guidance of Rewards Training Scotland and has since demonstrated remarkable dedication and skill as a finance/administration assistant. Her journey is a personal triumph and a shining example of the KC Group Shipping BeKC company cultural initiative. This initiative emphasises commitment, hard work, and continuous learning - qualities that Nicole embodies perfectly.

SVQs in the professional landscape bring essential learning, development and knowledge to individuals and their organisations, and these qualifications play a pivotal role in customer relationships, especially crucial in sectors like shipping where robust finance management is essential for smooth operations.

A delighted and proud Nicole commented on her achievement: "I am absolutely delighted to have completed my SVQ qualification and incredibly honoured to be nominated for the Scottish Apprenticeship Award. The recognition fills me with pride and motivates me to strive for excellence in my career. I want to thank my KC colleagues and our leadership team for their continued support."

Lisa McCormack, Financial Controller at KC Group Shipping, commented, "We are immensely proud of Nicole's achievements. She is an integral part of our team, and her success reflects the hard work and dedication we've all seen from Nicole and what we value in KC employees. Nicole's journey inspires us all and reinforces the importance of nurturing talent within our organisation."

Nicole's achievement is more than a personal milestone; it's also a significant moment for KC Group Shipping, highlighting the organisation's commitment to employee development and excellence in the shipping industry.
