Retail Path Apprentice Uzair Mansoor has now successfully completed his placement at Highcross Leicester, congratulations! Have a read of what they have to say...

Throughout our working careers we see many individuals move onto pastures new, but very few will have made such a deep impression with the Highcross team as our Business Administration Apprentice, Uzair Mansoor.

Uzair leaves us on Friday 23 February, having successfully achieved his Level 2 NVQ apprenticeship and will be embarking on the next exciting chapter of his life with Hastings, based in the city centre.

Uzairs’ journey started with us 18 months ago, initially spending time in each department, from back of house bin runs to customer service. The final sixth months have been in a business administrator role, supporting both commercialisation and the wider senior team. There isn’t a department within Highcross that hasn’t been positively affected by his enthusiasm and positive attitude. 

One thing that is clear is that the whole team are extremely proud of Uzair and the journey he’s undertaken throughout his apprenticeship, from his professional ability to work with staff, management, retailers and customers internally, to his ability to represent both Highcross and Hammerson at educational careers events with local schools and colleges and national bodies such as Revo Educational Trust.

Uzair has been a great ambassador for Highcross and the Apprenticeship scheme and is a celebrated example of what is achievable when developing the skills and behaviours needed by young people to be successful in the work place. 

It is with great sadness that Uzair’s time with us at Highcross has come to an end and yet we will also celebrate a job well done.

Good Luck Uzair! 



We are currently developing our new Retail Path scheme. Watch this space!
