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 work with several training providers to offer apprenticeships at all levels, from intermediate to degree level. We have links with local schools and colleges, offering work experience, work shadowing, mock interviews and CV skills workshops. We strive to retain the skills learned by our apprentices, many of our past apprentices have gone on to full time permanent roles within the group.
