Apprentice up for national award

Huram Masood

One of our apprentices has been shortlisted for a national award in recognition of his outstanding work.

Huram Masood is one of only three apprentices from across the country to have gone forward to the Apprentice of the Year finals in the British Security Awards, which is organised by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) awards, the trade body that represents the UK’s private security industry.

The 25-year-old from Birmingham joined us in January 2017 and is expected to complete his Level 3 qualifications in Fire, Emergency and Security Systems by October, supplementing a clutch of other qualifications that cover subjects such as Health & Safety, first aid and asbestos.

Judges were impressed with the impact Huram has already made on our business and with the progress he has made since beginning his training, which has enabled him to undertake solo preventative maintenance visits, as part of the on-call team.

Mary Vadaie, JMSS Business Development Manager, said: “We pride ourselves on not just on the quality of our apprenticeship scheme, but also on the quality of our apprentices. Huram has already proven himself to be a real ambassador for the company and we are thrilled he has made it to the national British Security Awards finals.”

Mike Reddington, Chief Executive of the BSIA, said: “The judging of all the exceptional entries that we received was no easy task, given the level of nominations and the incredible quality of performance and innovation on display. The finalists of 2019’s British Security Awards should be immensely proud of their achievements and we wish them the best of luck on the national stage.”

The awards ceremony takes place on July 10 at the London Grosvenor Marriott Hotel.
