SimplyBiz Group Joint Managing Director, Neil Stevens, started his own career twenty years ago as an Apprentice and is therefore a keen supporter of the scheme adding, “As an ex-apprentice myself I know the benefit of being given a starting chance; to learn, to contribute and to shine. Young people entering the workplace can significantly accelerate their career development by committing to a programme of structured learning which provides the relevant experience needed to get to the next stage of their career. The speed and enthusiasm with which our new apprentices begin to add real value to our business is just incredible.”
We have committed to working with local schools and the Entice Project each year to offer a range of apprenticeship vacancies in a variety of specialisms which have the ability to lead to a long term, challenging and rewarding career. Additionally we also run information sessions on the SimplyBiz Group and the type of careers that we can offer, work experience and interviewing and CV skills workshops.
All of our past apprentices have gone on to full time permanent roles within the Group and have built strong and productive careers.
