ASCO attended the OGUK Awards 2021 on Wednesday 8th December to celebrate the top industry talent at the P&J Live in Aberdeen.

Joel Murray, previous ASCO apprentice in Peterhead and now Senior Material Operative in Aberdeen, was among the finalists, up for year’s prestigious "Apprentice of the Year" Award.

A total of 27 entrants were shortlisted after an expert panel considered over 90 nominees for the eight award categories.

Although Joel was not the Apprenticeship of the Year winner, he was delighted and very honoured to receive the final award of the night, the Audience Award. Virtual and in-person attendees were able to vote throughout the night towards this award, choosing between all of the finalists.

Joel commented: "Thank you to my family and friends at the event and those watching on the live stream and anyone else who voted for me. I was delighted with this award and leave the event with a trophy.

"This event was a great way to top off what’s been my breakthrough year in my career ASCO Group and thanks to all that’s been involved with it since day 1 a couple years back. It was also great to be able to celebrate last night's event with both my family and work colleagues."

Congratulations to Sam Tinning at bp who took home the Apprenticeship Award, and all of the other winners on the night.

The event was a great success and was well-attended both in person and virtually!

ASCO celebrated with those who have worked alongside Joel including his mentor, Adam Ritchie, the HR team and his family.
