Luton Hoo’s Millie Shaw shortlisted for Purple Umbrella Awards 2020

We are excited to announce that Marketing Assistant, Millie Shaw, is a finalist for "Apprentice of the Year (Non Umbrella learner)" at the Purple Umbrella Awards 2020.

The Purple Umbrella Awards celebrate the success of the rising stars of the Hospitality industry. They recognise outstanding achievement, commitment, adding value to the apprentice’s organisation and personal development.

Millie has been at Luton Hoo since January 2017. She started out as a Level 2 Business Administration apprentice, before completing a Level 3 course. After finishing her second apprenticeship, General Manager Matthew Long, created a full-time position for Millie, as she had become such an invaluable member of the team and a true asset to the hotel.

Matthew Long said “Millie is hard-working, dedicated, a real team player and always has a smile on her face – a true embodiment of Luton Hoo’s five-star hospitality. It would be brilliant to see her contribution recognised by winning the Purple Umbrella Award.”

The awards are taking place on Friday 6th March at London's The Savoy and we wish Millie the best of luck!
