We have taken on our biggest cohort of apprentices this autumn, welcoming 15 accountancy and IT apprentices aged between 16 and 20 to our offices in Droitwich Spa and Bromsgrove.
The successful apprenticeship programme was launched in 2012 in response to a skills shortage across the sector.
Accounts manager Doug Marshall, who devised the scheme, said: “I created the programme with the intention of recruiting young, ambitious individuals who would become the future of our company. In the first year, we recruited five school leavers and the number of apprentices taken on has risen year on year.
“We believe the scheme gives talented youngsters the opportunity to fulfil their potential by offering full study support, mentoring on site and a vibrant working environment.”
We were named medium apprenticeship employer of the year at the 2015 Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards and sponsored the advanced level apprentice of the year category at this year’s event, which was won by Pippa Dressler-Pearson.
