Swift Group has today announced the largest intake of apprentices in its 60 year history.
Over 40 apprentices have joined Swift for a full 3 year apprenticeship in level 2 Engineering Operative, level 3 Engineering Fitter as well as Supply Chain Warehouse Operative. The apprentices are supported by day release training at Hull Training and Adult Education and at the end of year 2 will specialise in their chosen area of the business.
Swift has ambitious growth plans and the apprenticeship scheme will help to supplement the recruitment strategy to not only attract the best talent, but to also grow and develop their own pool of trained and educated young people.
Amy Archer, Swift Deputy MD, said...
“This is a huge step forward in welcoming our biggest ever apprenticeship intake to help support the exciting phase of the company’s growth. Having a pool of ambitious young talent coming through the ranks will ensure we are covered for the future with highly skilled and trained technicians throughout our organisation.”
As well as the apprenticeship scheme the company has a scholarship programme where Swift is training their next generation of engineers in conjunction with Sheffield Hallam University on a 4 year day release degree-level fully- funded course.
