Aleesha scoops national award

A former apprentice who became a senior human resource consultant in just three years has scooped a national Young Business Woman of the Year award at a ceremony in London.

Aleesha Skett, from Donnington, successfully completed a two-year apprenticeship with The HR Dept Shropshire before being promoted to a leading role as a senior HR consultant in 2023, working with local SMEs across Shropshire.  

The National Business Women’s Awards 2023 announced the category winner at their annual star-studded award ceremony held in the Hilton Hotel, Wembley, north London. Now in their seventh year, the Awards continually strive to offer so many incredible business women a platform of their own to celebrate their incredible achievements and  rewards; and promote stars of today and of tomorrow across many diverse sectors.

Aleesha said: “I am absolutely thrilled and totally surprised with this national recognition. A great deal of work has gone into developing The HR Dept business across Shropshire in recent years. I’ve been very fortunate to have played a part in that success both as an apprentice and now a qualified senior consultant.”

Last year the National Business Women’s Awards recognised company director Níamh Kelly as the Business Woman of the Year.
