Congratulations to former Wyke student, Ruth Walmsley, on winning her nomination for “Employee of the Year” at the recent Hull Daily Mail Business Awards.
Ruth came to Wyke from Wolfreton School and studied A levels in Media Studies, Graphic Design, and English Language & Literature.
Starting as an Apprentice Designer at Blab digital design agency back in 2019, Ruth made an outstanding amount of progress and worked hard to complete her apprenticeship six months early.
Jessica Clark, Creative Director at Blab, recognises Ruth’s fantastic contribution to the agency. “We are so impressed with her attitude to knuckle down, despite the challenges faced due to the pandemic and shifting to work and learn remotely. It was a no-brainer for us to keep her in the company after her studies finished and now she shines as one of our full-time Designers.
A true team player, Ruth shares her ideas, leads creative brainstorms and organises social events to get everyone together. She is a huge part of Blab and we couldn’t be prouder of her!”
Ruth modestly replied, “I’m super chuffed to have been shortlisted for Employee of the Year. I couldn’t have done it without Courtney and Jess believing in me every step of the way. Bring on the awards night with the best team!”
Well done Ruth, you’re a great example to students who want to progress into the workplace once they complete their Wyke studies.
