A young apprentice has impressed and landed a job at Newcastle United’s ground.

Elisha Lindsay, 22, from Blaydon, originally joined the team at St James’ Park on a one-year contract as a customer service apprentice.

However, bosses at Sodexo Prestige, which manages catering and events at the ground, were so impressed with her hard work and dedication to the role, that she has now been offered a full-time position as a conference and banqueting sales co-ordinator.

In her new role Elisha will help promote the stadium to corporate and leisure clients looking for a venue for parties, conferences or meetings.

Samantha Doyle, area sales manager for Sodexo Prestige, said: “From her very first day with us, Elisha’s enthusiasm and commitment were obvious.”
