You're fired! Er, I mean hired!

Sir Alan Sugar, the very doyen of business himself says: “It’s important that employers take apprenticeships seriously. Apprentices can help a business to grow and thrive.”

Here at the Chamber we have trained many apprentices and a considerable number have gone on to join our staff. An apprentice isn’t necessary someone who is unemployed, they may already be in work and looking to gain skills in their chosen profession, they many be a recent school leaver or a university graduate looking to start their career.

Trident Training the Chamber’s training arm is able to offer pre-screened apprentices to employers. Ruth Runacus, Trident’s dedicated Employer Support Officer said: “We aim to be fit for purpose and bear your specific needs in mind when we pre-vet candidates suitable to your vacancy with the skills you need. We pride ourselves with superb job matching.”

Apprenticeships are crucial for providing employers with the skills they need to succeed from accountancy to engineering to construction to creative industries and sport.
