The apprentice has recently started its seventeenth season. The popular show broadcast across BBC One sees Lord Alan Sugar mentor eighteen hopeful entrepreneurs. The prize for the winner; a £250,000 investment and Lord Sugar as a business partner.
This year, Social Buzzing will be managing the Instagram account of contestant Mark Mosely whilst he takes part in the show. As of now, Mark is going strong in the competition and has even been tipped as a potential winner by many bookmakers.
Who is Mark Moseley?
Mark Moseley, a proud veteran who now lives in London has worked all over the world with his keen eye for business. Before starting his journey on The Apprentice, Mark launched his own business Pestgone Environment, a pest control company providing pest control services within Ken and the surrounding areas of London. Key to the company’s ethos is its commitment to creating a sustainable future for the planet. For every customer, the company is committed to planting a tree in a rainforest in support of Kenyan bee farmers by helping them generate incomes, whilst also helping to facilitate the protection of bee populations which are on a global decline.
Notably, before founding Pestgone Environmental, Mark actually served as a combat engineer as part of the British Army for over eight years. Initially, Mark graduated from Reepham High School, located in Norfolk, in 1999 before he started studying at the Royal School of Military Engineering. Using his knowledge and experience, Mark successfully completed multiple operations as a combat engineer, serving in both Germany and Afghanistan.
Outside of his business ventures, Mark is a keen mountaineer. He has currently summitted over 100 peaks with his most notable climbs including Mont Blanc, Mount Elbrus, and Mount Kilimanjaro. Pretty impressive if you ask us!
Mark’s Journey on The Apprentice
Business savvy, athletic, and a proud veteran, Mark has accomplished it all, but what does he hope to get from his journey on The Apprentice?
Mark has joined a number of contestants this year on The Apprentice with the hopes of winning a quarter of a million pounds and Lord Sugar himself as a business partner. Mark states that Lord Sugar would be ‘missing a trick’ not to invest in his business, but what do you think?
