Georgie Searle

Wing Mirror Man, a supplier of wing mirrors, has taken on Georgia Searle as a sales and administration assistant to boost its customer service team.

Georgia, 18, will help the Bury, Greater Manchester-based company to support existing and potential customers in their product requirements, working within the customers’ sales support team.

She joins under the Government’s National Apprenticeship Scheme.

The business supplies wing mirrors for almost all makes and models of cars, vans and motorhomes to customers in the UK, Europe and further afield.

Steven Speed, Managing Director of Wing Mirror Man, said: “Georgia’s appointment is part of our growth plans for the next three years and will help to support our customer service team.”

Georgia, who attended Bury College where she studied A-Levels in Business, Geography and Law, turned down the opportunity to go to university in favour of an apprenticeship.

She comments: “University just wasn’t for me. A lot of my friends have also followed an apprenticeship route rather than go to university.

“So far, I am really enjoying working at Wing Mirror Man. It’s definitely better than going to university as I can study part-time whilst earning at the same time.

“There’s plenty of variety in the work and I am looking forward to working with the team.”
