“Over recent years we at Carillion place huge emphasis on the apprenticeship programmes and the Succession planning benefits which go along with them.
Working in partnership with the College, the apprentice is trained to do a job to a specific standard in accordance with the demands of the programme. This means that the apprentice will receive a qualification relevant to our business and it shows they have the skills to do the job.
Taking this into account this can help us make a decision to offer the apprentice a full time position.
The programme has been very beneficial to Carillion as we now have numerous former apprentices who have progressed in recent years to become reliable members of the team and who are now employed as plumbers or team leaders within the business.”
