“We are incredibly proud of Rory and are delighted by his success. He worked very hard throughout his apprenticeship and has developed into a skilled multi-trader and a fantastic role model. He is a great asset to the ENGIE team. Rory’s recent recognition by Youthbuild UK and On the Tools demonstrates how far he has come, and what you can achieve with determination and effort.”
