Kek- Gardner Ltd is committed to developing its workforce and has introduced an apprenticeship scheme to both enhance the skills of its employees and to give young people in the local area the opportunity to gain valuable training and experience for a long term structured career path.
In recent months, Kek-Gardner has recruited three new apprentices who are studying at local colleges; Tom Booth is studying Engineering and joins the company as an apprentice Applications and Assembly Engineer. Nicole Bradley, already with a Business Administration NVQ joins as Purchasing Assistant and is due to start a Purchasing course in September. Rebecca Turner joins the Accounts Department and is studying for the AAT (Association for Accounting Technicians) Qualification.
Kek-Gardner's MD, George Tunnicliffe is convinced that this form of recruitment and vocational training helps both the company and the trainees alike and comments "Hiring apprentices is a tried and tested way of investing in the future of Kek-Gardner at the same time as giving our staff the practical skills and academic qualifications they will need for a successful career... The mixture of on and off the job training ensures they learn the skills that work best for our company"
