About the Apprenticeship:
Whether you’re joining us from further education or are someone looking for a career change, you’ll soon make an impact on our Human Resources department in this responsibility-laden Apprenticeship. HR is the function that develops and delivers our people policies, enabling us to attract and retain the very best people into our business.
You’ll do a real job with real business-critical outcomes, all the while working toward an apprenticeship qualification, which is recognised across the HR sector.
Training takes place with one of our dedicated training providers, so you’ll have dedicated academic support to ensure you make the very most of your development. Once you qualify, you’ll have live project experience, exposure to how a challenging HR function works and knowledge of the day-to-day workings of the department.
Where you go from there is up to you. One thing is for certain – you’ll have no shortage of possibilities within our business.
The scheme takes 24 months to complete which includes 20% off the job training where you will work towards your apprenticeship qualification and gain real-life insight into the world of HR
You’ll bring dedication, passion, and a real desire to succeed. Working brilliantly as part of a team, you’ll also be confident working autonomously and will be driven to get results. A company that moves as fast as ours means you need to relish a challenge and have a can-do attitude, but with our brilliant training you can be sure you’ll learn lots of new skills. To apply, you’ll need three A-levels at grade C or above (or equivalent), including English Literature or Language and GCSE Maths at C/4 or above (or equivalent). Plus a clean driving licence and boundless energy and enthusiasm for the career path you’ve chosen.
We’re looking for someone who’s comfortable with multiple IT packages, document production, has fantastic interpersonal skills and is highly organised. Highly professional, able to deal with confidential and sensitive information discretely, ambitious, motivated, and adaptable to all kinds of new situations, you’ll be ready to take accountability for your own actions and ready to pull together as part of a brilliant, high-performing team.
What’s in it for you?
To say thank you for your hard work, we will work with you to support your career progression and development, including the opportunity to work in other parts of our business. We will also provide a competitive salary, company pension scheme, medical insurance and dental care schemes, access to the company’s healthy living centre and 33 days annual leave.
