Russell Taylor Group says apprentices at heart of future development
Russell Taylor Group has celebrated the role its apprentices have played in the company's growth.
The company says it vows that young people will be at the heart of its future development.
As part of National Apprenticeship Week, the organisation reflects on the impact apprentices have made on the company in its 10-year history.
Since its start-up in 2006, Russell Taylor Group, whose headquarters are in Bromborough, Wirral, has taken on 24 apprentices. Of these, 13 are still with the business while many, due to their training, have moved on to careers in other areas or set up their own business.
Group chairman, Peter Russell, said, “In such a marketplace, we recognised early on that developing ‘home grown’ talent was a key feature to meeting staffing needs and, through our apprentices, we have seen clear, proven advantages not only for the company as a whole but also for the future of these young people.”
“Russell Taylor Group is very proud of its record in developing these young people and is so much in awe of its young apprentices.
“The biggest incentive for me to come to work is to see the nurtured progress of so many young talented people, some of whom joined us at the tender ages of 16-18 and are now developing into mature, high performing stars.
“Their loyalty and commitment is an inspiration to us all but, more importantly, is a fabulous testimony for the future of apprenticeship development.
“In fact, we are currently searching for our next group of potential future stars to help take the business forward.”
