Apprentice revolutionises business operation

Posted on 15 Sep 2016

A Business Management apprentice has received an exciting promotion after implementing a warehouse and inventory system which has revolutionised the running order of a local business.

Panache Mujaya, 19 years old from Whitefield, began his Level 2 Business Administration apprenticeship in 2014 at Innovate FM in Radcliffe, a soft services facilities management delivery company that supports numerous fields, industries and partners nationwide.

Amongst his many duties, Panache was responsible for organising and maintaining the warehouse and inventory which involved tagging, scanning and logging every piece of equipment that belonged in the warehouse. Panache designed a spreadsheet and log book to ensure that everything that came in and out of the warehouse was accounted for.

Panache’s achievements were recognised and awarded and received a promotion to Fleet and Inventory Manager.

Employing an apprentice can give enthusiastic individuals the opportunity to come into a company and introduce new ideas and concepts. Gemma Matthews, Operations Manager at Innovate FM said, “I have worked in operations for 17 years and I have never seen a system like the one Panache has created and developed, it has blown me away! He has used his initiative to design something which is unique to this company and works great within our team.”

Panache completed his Level 2 qualification in June 2016 and would now like to complete a Level 3 Business Management apprenticeship. The former Prestwich Arts College pupil said, “I have really enjoyed my apprenticeship and the practical experience I have gained whilst learning at the same time. I am really proud of the two systems that I have developed, it involved spending a lot of time in the warehouse and being organised but I really enjoyed doing it and seeing the end result.”
