A supervisor at Specsavers in Ely is urging youngsters to consider an apprenticeship after she kickstarted her career at the shop two years ago.
Jade Jozunas started her Specsavers Retail Apprenticeship in September 2018 and passed with flying colours in November 2019.
Jade worked at the store, earning an apprentice wage with four hours training time each week.
She also supported customers from pre-screening to choosing the best glasses and lenses to suit their needs, developing her customer service skills.
"My most memorable day during my apprenticeship was when I was promoted to supervisor without needing to apply for the position," Jade said.

Jade is encouraging more people to consider an apprenticeship as part of National Apprenticeship Week from February 3 to 7.
