Nineteen-year-old Kate Malton joined Selby College straight from school and immediately showed a real flair for business; successfully completing a period of
work experience at Lloyds TSB.
After gaining two distinctions, and a merit in her course; along with Word and Text Processing certificates and a distinction in Personal Finance; Kate was offered a job as a sales trainee at Triesse Ltd in Sherburn in Elmet near Leeds, which manufactures veneered and laminated timber products. Triesse Managing Director, David Colman said "Kate has been a positive addition to our key sales team. She has quickly become an integral part of the Veneer Sales Team who has the ability to positively interact with our diverse customer base."
Kate herself said: "It's going great, I really enjoy the role and have gained a good understanding of the market and economy, what makes a good sales person and how to achieve targets. "I hope to progress within the company of Triesse Ltd and work my way up the ladder to gain a more in depth understanding of the timber industry and help the company to progress." She admits her time at Selby College has been invaluable to her career so far, saying: "it helped me to achieve the grades I was aiming for, the Lecturers taught me well, were always there to help and made lessons enjoyable. The staff around the college were always on hand and added to the friendly atmosphere, I thoroughly enjoyed my three years and without Selby College
I wouldn't be where I am today."
