During National Apprenticeship Week, 3-7 February, we are celebrating the achievements of our amazing apprentices.
A good proportion of our apprentices go on to secure permanent roles at Broadland. James Godfrey, Head of HR Services, explains how apprenticeships also benefit us as an employer:
Apprenticeships introduce us to some amazing people of all ages, allowing us to develop them into well-skilled and motivated colleagues who bring a new dimension to our workforce. In fact, we’re one of the top 100 not-for-profit organisations in the Best Companies Survey, which is an independent survey completed by employees.
Offering quality apprenticeships has allowed us to attract really high-calibre raw talent into a sector where there is a recognised skills shortage, and to develop skills which are directly relevant to our needs as an employer. It’s a real win:win.
Broadland’s apprenticeship scheme welcomes trainees in a wide range of disciplines, including office-based roles such as business admin and customer service; trades such as plumbing, gas and electrical; and multi-disciplinary apprenticeships taking in a range of departments including HR, finance, housing, property management and facilities.
