Introducing Matthew Skellorn

Matthew was studying Business Studies at college, but after completing his first year, his plans changed, and he discovered classroom learning was not for him. While researching apprenticeships, the idea of working while learning and gaining valuable qualifications had great appeal. So, Matthew applied for the Lantei Apprenticeship Scheme as a Business Administration Apprentice.

Initially, Matthew gained an insight into the inner workings of Lantei on Helpdesk. This was an administrative role where he processed sales orders and liaised with Operations for further information. He then took the opportunity to operate in various departments. Following this, he found that his skill set aligned with the Marketing division, working on the development of The Electrical Safety Network. He grew the booking numbers by over 50% to make the network even more successful. As a direct result, Matthew won Lantei’s internal Apprentice of the Year Award in 2018.

It STARTED WITH AN OpportunitY

Anthony Smith, CEO saw potential in this bright spark and gave him the opportunity in December 2018 to grow the BES Group Electrical division. Since then, Matthew has excelled in taking bookings and coordinating courses. Having success with both entities of the business meant he won the Sub36 Awards ‘Apprentice of the Year 2019’ category. Incredibly, he was also a finalist for the Lancashire Business View ‘Customer Champion Award.’

“I joined Lantei when I was 16 and wouldn’t be where I am today without my team. Big shout out to my mentors Anthony Smith and Krish Parekh for providing me with opportunities I never thought I would be offered. Growing BES Group Electrical has been both challenging and rewarding. But, I’m looking forward to seeing where the future takes me and the business.”

Matthew has just celebrated his fourth Lantei birthday and continues to grow in conjunction with BES Group Electrical each day. He provides each customer with the best experience possible when visiting our Preston training centre.
