Meet Chelsea, a final­ist in the CRN Women and Diver­si­ty in Chan­nel’ Awards 2022

After becom­ing a Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tor Appren­tice at Not­ting­ham, Chelsea Brass­ing­ton, secured a job as Con­tract Admin­is­tra­tor at Jigsaw24 and became a final­ist in the CRN Awards for 2022.

Chelsea had been made redun­dant at the begin­ning of the pan­dem­ic and found that her qual­i­fi­ca­tions left her with a lim­it­ed range of job options. As she want­ed to return to work­ing as soon as pos­si­ble, she decid­ed an appren­tice­ship was the best option for her.

What I loved about an appren­tice­ship is that it incor­po­rat­ed learn­ing and work­ing together.

After look­ing for an appren­tice­ship, she found Not­ting­ham Col­lege had sev­er­al jobs avail­able and she was suc­cess­ful obtain­ing the Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tor Apprenticeship.

Not­ting­ham Col­lege was able to help me pre­pare for the inter­views and gave me sup­port in find­ing a job that suit­ed me.

A typ­i­cal day for her, as a Con­tract Admin­is­tra­tor includes log­ging and updat­ing con­tracts on their IT data­base for the ser­vice desk to use when answer­ing cus­tomer calls. She also cre­ates cus­tomer con­tracts when sup­port is purchased. 

I love that my role requires me to be organ­ised and com­mu­ni­cate with a vari­ety of peo­ple through­out the busi­ness, sup­port­ing my development. 

 — Chelsea Brass­ing­ton

In addi­tion to those tasks, Chelsea com­pletes ad hoc tasks which can take any­thing from 5 min­utes to a few hours. Her favourite thing about the role is that each con­tract is slight­ly dif­fer­ent which her alert and pre­pared to deal with any­thing and everything.

Through my cur­rent role as a Con­tract Admin­is­tra­tor and my Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tor Appren­tice­ship, I have dis­cov­ered by best attrib­ut­es and how I can incor­po­rate them into my career. In the future, I plan to con­tin­ue to do a role that I feel chal­lenged and reward­ed doing.

Ear­li­er this year, after Chelsea com­plet­ed her appren­tice­ship with Not­ting­ham Col­lege, her man­agers nom­i­nat­ed her in the CRN Women and Diver­si­ty in Chan­nel Awards 2022’ for the Graduate/​Apprentice of the Year’ Award.

The CRN awards are about cham­pi­oning women and diver­si­ty with­in the IT industry. 

I have been luck­i­ly enough to be put through to be a final­ist, with the win­ner announced in Octo­ber 2022. I was very shocked to hear I was a final­ist, as hun­dreds of peo­ple are nom­i­nat­ed for this award each year, as IT is a grow­ing indus­try with more women join­ing each year. I am hon­oured to be in my posi­tion and have been giv­en this opportunity. 

 — Chelsea Brass­ing­ton

Con­grat­u­la­tions Chelsea!
