Shaping careers, changing lives
During 2017, we created a further 1,200 apprenticeship positions within the Group, bringing the total to 5,500 since 2012. Of the new apprenticeship opportunities taken up by external candidates, 44 per cent were filled by candidates from the UK’s most disadvantaged areas.
The apprenticeship programmes are open to people of all ages and are offered both internally across the Group and to external candidates. They provide opportunities for colleagues who are just starting their career, for those who are looking to excel in their role, or maybe take a change in direction.
