Former Hull College student Holly wins Student of the Year at Awards ceremony

23 year old Holly Joyce, who studied Business Administration and IT NVQ Level 3 at Hull College, was named "Student of the Year" at an Awards ceremony at the College last week.

Holly, who joined the firm as an Office Assistant at the end of April having completed her NVQ Level 3 early, settled in to her new role at Rollits and the training and qualifications she got from Hull College assisted her greatly with the transition to full-time employment.

Holly says "Winning 'Student of the Year' is such a brilliant achievement, it really shows that when you put the hard work in and are determined to succeed you really do shine through! There are a lot of students within the college and to know that I have been picked and acknowledged is amazing, it's such a great feeling!!

"I worked extremely hard on my assignments and work at college and organised many fund raising activities as well as helping out with events such as Hull Bondholders, Hull College Events and the Yorkshire Passion event."

And to top off her achievements at the Awards, earlier the same day Holly also discovered that she had been successful following her interview for a new legal secretary position in the firm's Company and Commercial Department.

Holly continues "I am hoping my new role at Rollits will help me gain even more skills and experience, and I am looking forward to the challenges and learning experience ahead of me."

Office Manager Linda Cook comments "Holly started out with us as a General Office Assistant and very quickly demonstrated that she has great potential.  We are hoping that as the newest member of our Legal Secretarial Team Holly will gain valuable experience in a role that demands a high degree of accuracy whilst at the same time bringing fresh ideas to help fulfil our desire to continuously look at how we can do things better.

"In winning the Award and coincidentally being promoted on the same day Holly is a shining example of how hard work and dedication really do pay off."
