Profile: The Apprentice 2011 finalist - Helen Milligan!

Helen Milligan

Last night Lord Sugar picked his final four candidates on tonight's Apprentice 2011 and here we start to profile the potential winners, starting with Helen Milligan. The executive assistant from Northumberland made her mark on the series with an unrivalled winning streak spanning nine weeks, setting a new Apprentice record.

Helen also secured a two for two track record as Project Manager, leading teams to victory in the rubbish disposal and biscuit tasks. She also secured over £1 million in sales across two tasks, smashing all previous records.

She says: “I believe I’m one of the best employees a company could take on. I’m extremely loyal and extremely hard working but now it’s time for me to start my own business with Lord Sugar and start reaping some success for myself. I really want this.”
