Go-Ahead has pledged to expand apprentice recruitment by 20% this year following last year’s successful recruitment campaign.
In 2019 the firm met its target of recruiting 1,000 apprentices including positions in customer service, business administration and mechanical, engineering and technical roles. Training takes between 12 and 36 months.
Recent recruits include mothers returning to work, a former mental health counsellor and a prison worker.
Go-Ahead Group Chief Executive David Brown says: “We successfully reached 1,000 apprentices in 2019 and now we’re being even more ambitious. We understand the importance of recruiting talent from all . . .
