Chelsea Williams

Chelsea Williams was one of the first ever Level 4 apprentices. Chelsea was hired by ASOS as a Buyers Assistant and was even the face of the apprenticeship campaign.

“I didn't have the best of starts with my initial apprentice. The first company I worked for was not legally complaint and Fashion Enter fully protected me and then worked with me to make sure that I had a job that was really worthwhile. I was so happy to be selected by asos.com for my apprenticeship. I love my job and the work that I do, and during the two years Fashion Enter was there to fully support me. I was equally happy when I was asked to be the face of apprenticeships, but it was a shock seeing my face all around the billboards in London! I would recommend an apprenticeship to anyone who wants to work hard at achieving - its all about the effort you put in but you can make it! Just never give up.”
