Apprenticeships: Seddon leading the way
19 February 2018
Seddon have a national reputation for excellence in the broad range of projects and services they deliver within the construction and built environment sector. That said, they also have a national reputation for excellence when it comes to recruiting, training and retaining apprentices!
Founded in 1897 – and with an annual turnover of around £180 million – they have been supporting apprentices for much of this time, with well over 3,000 of them from local areas supported. Working with Apprenticeships at Salford City College as their primary apprenticeship partner, Seddon currently have 67 apprentices on their books. The majority of these are in craft and building services areas, but an increasing number are now in management and support functions across their business too.
Seddon have chosen National Apprenticeship Week to launch their 2018 Apprenticeship Recruitment Programme. Kat Healey, Training Manager at Seddon stated: “There is no better time to launch our annual apprenticeship recruitment. National Apprenticeship Week is about celebrating all that is good about apprenticeships. As a company we absolutely believe that apprenticeships are vital to not only our business, but also to our sector.”
This year, Seddon, supported by Apprenticeships at Salford City College, will be recruiting up to 20 new trade, management and support service apprentices – the majority of whom will be recruited as part of this campaign. For more information on the vacancies and the recruitment process, please go to www.seddon.co.uk. Vacancies go live from the 5 March 2018 at 9am.
