Codie Cargill

Having recently left school, Codie Cargill is now developing her interest in business with a Business & Administration Apprenticeship with Pure.

Based in Inverness, Codie will be providing essential administrative support to the team whilst at the same time completing her apprenticeship in association with The Virtual Learning Academy.

Codie says “I’m excited to start my career in business and put some of the things I’ve learnt at school and college into practice”

Out-with work, Codie trains in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, reaching grey belt with 2 stripes level.  She also has an interest in motorbikes, rides her own moped and likes to tinker with them, learning as she helps her dad with any maintenance.

Codie is also an avid baker, having previously worked in a local baker and the team at Pure have already had the pleasure of sampling some of her creations.

Customer Service Manager Elaine Dunn said: “It’s great having Codie on board. She’s a lovely girl, a real asset to the team and as excited as she is to learn with Pure, we are excited to be able to support her as she embarks on her career in business and administration.”
