We have 36 apprentices already working across a diverse range of departments and roles across our business and we continue to build on this success by welcoming new apprentices to the business each year. We are delighted to have received 470 applications for our 2018 intake - with 20 roles due to start with us later this year.
Following this intake, we plan to welcome more apprentices to the business during 2019. To find out more and to register your interest in becoming part of our award-winning Apprentice Scheme in 2019, click here.
