Today is #internationalwomensday and to celebrate Saks Apprenticeships are throwing the spotlight on the achievements of some of the ladies we have had the pleasure of working with over the last year.

One thing all these ladies have in common between themselves and their fellow apprentices is a dedication and determination to not let anything get in their way, to ensure they beat the challenges put before them and achieve the best they can.

Saks Apprenticeships are proud to have worked with them through these challenges and are happy to be working with the next generation of #extraordinaryladies.
