Apprentices give recruiters new drive
Four apprentices have joined recruitment and training company Bromak as it continues to invest in developing young people across its branch network.
Two of the apprentices have joined the training business, while the other two are supporting the recruitment arm of the organisation.
Their 12-month Modern Apprenticeships will cover functions including business administration, business and finance and accounting, leading to an NVQ Level 2 at the end of the programme.
The four apprentices are: Kayleigh Harper (NVQ business admin) based in Durham, Danielle Caudwell (NVQ business admin) who is working in Sheffield, Ashley Holding (NVQ accounting and AAT) and Fiona Sargent (NVQ business admin), who are working for the training business in Bolton. Ashley and Fiona have joined the scheme through the enterprise team at Bolton Lads and Girls Club, of which Bromak is a patron.
Dave Brooks, Bromak managing director, said: “This is a win-win situation for Bromak and the apprentices. These young people are already making a difference to the business and they receive support and training on specific skills which will help them learn and grow into the world of work.
“We firmly believe in helping young people by supporting the apprenticeship scheme, and we are committed to this across our business as we grow our network.”
The National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) supports, funds and co-ordinates the delivery of apprenticeships throughout England.
Businesses across the country are increasingly realising the benefits that apprenticeships create, not only in terms of developing a highly skilled workforce but also by boosting productivity and staff retention.
Research shows that apprenticeships are an effective way of training, developing and skilling people for the future, helping businesses to secure a supply of people with the skills and qualities they need which are often not available on the external job market.
Bromak, which works with major UK contractors, developers, local authorities and housing associations, is the only recruitment consultancy in its sector accredited to deliver Construction Skills training.
