Our apprenticeship programme is integral in creating the future generation of loyal Swift employees. Over this last year, we have stripped back and rebuilt the full programme with the help of our partners Hull Training and Adult Education, to ensure that we offer a superior development pathway.
But none of this will be possible without the dedication to the business from our youngsters and to celebrate this we will be running an apprentice of the month award that will recognise their commitment to Swift and their hard work both in the workplace and at college.
October’s Award has gone to Liam Barley.
Tony Gotts The Repair Centre Manager wrote:
"Since Liam joined my department he has carried out every task that I have given him to a good standard, working on several projects at any one time which is very difficult for a time-served operative never mind an apprentice.
"Liam gets on well with the full team and he has great timekeeping and attendance.
"Liam has a great attitude towards his work and you will never find him sulking even when he is asked to sweep up!
"Lastly, I like to say that I needed an extra person to attend the NEC show and work away over the weekend and he jumped at it. Liam adapted very well and worked great within the team getting involved with all aspects of the show set up."
We would all like to take this opportunity to congratulate Liam for his hard work and dedication to the business and we are very excited to see what the future holds for this young man.
