Eighteen year-old Carly Toal has been hired as assistant marketing account executive at County Durham creative agency We Are The Works, after completing a Level 3 in Business Administration apprenticeship.

During her two year paid apprenticeship at Gateshead College, which she started after leaving Hebburn Comprehensive school at 16, Carly developed her administration skills as well as gaining valuable marketing experience.

The role gave Carly the chance to develop her skills,  including writing marketing materials, updating the website, organising events and writing press releases.

Ian Oswold, Director at We Are The Works said; “Carly impressed us from the interview stage as she was able to talk about the industry with great confidence and knowledge.

She’s clearly a very capable youngster, equipped with the experience and skills needed to comfortably fit into a professional role.
