It currently has 15 apprentices and in 2019 plans to take on five more. “The commitment to bringing people on from apprentices is vital for our business and for our team.

In 2019 we will be celebrating 40 years of apprenticeships and a record 141 apprentices in training. Even during economic downturns we have continued to recruit new apprentices,
