Athona partners with local training company to introduce apprenticeship scheme
Athona Recruitment is to work alongside Essex-based training & development company ‘TheLightBulb’ to offer a range of apprenticeship opportunities.
Joanne Waggerman, training & development manager at Athona, said, “We recruit incredible people who, like us, believe in ‘affecting futures’. With that in mind, we wanted to help affect the futures of local young people looking to take their first step into the workplace – as we’re always looking for talent to join our busy company.”
The company says the scheme involves working across each department, including education and medical recruitment, and will enable apprentices to obtain a variety of new skills which will benefit them throughout their career in recruitment.
Simon Pitts, apprenticeship recruitment team leader, commented, “Athona have already proved to be a supportive employer and their assistance in the recruitment process has been a massive help. Having a strong partnership with a company that has the same ethos as TheLightBulb will help us to help more young people get a foothold on the job ladder.”
