National Apprenticeship Week 2022

To mark the end of National Apprenticeship week 2022, Southern Lubricants Ltd would like to introduce two of our many Apprenticeship success stories. “We hope this will inspire even more people to start their Apprenticeship journey.”

“Apprentices have an incredible impact across our Business, as we are sure they do others, and bring fresh perspective to Business operations. They really do challenge the processes and we empower them to do just that!”


Meet the success stories here at Southern Lubricants Ltd 


Business Administration Apprentice:

Laura Elson joined us as a Business Administration Apprentice and has grown from strength to strength. She has recently been promoted to Office Manager and is continuing her success story.



Laura has been an integral part of the team since she joined us in 2017. It has been a pleasure to assist her in her journey and watch her grow and mature. Laura has always been a dedicated and driven employee and so it was a pleasure to offer her a more Senior role here as Office Manager” – Director

 “Over the years I have been here, Southern Lubricants has pushed me to grow within my role. Starting as an apprentice, I never thought I would work my way up to Office Manager. Being able to work as well as learn at the same time makes the learning easier as you incorporate every part of your job into the coursework. It is a pleasure to work for such a welcoming, encouraging company, that makes every day enjoyable.” – Laura
