“Taking on new people who have very little working experience, and zero industry experience was always going to be a risk. However, we were confident that with our in-depth training programme and accomplished sales staff who have acted as mentors, any new members taken on would thrive. The apprentice programme is a great opportunity for young people to not only gain working experience, but also gain qualifications. We hope that we can take on more in the future, to not only grow Lion Containers, but also help the local economy prosper”
Such was their success with Amber, the firm decided to run the scheme via a series of open days.
They have now taken on 2 more apprentices in their Business Development and Customer Services Departments. The new apprentices are Maria Stanfield (18) from Walsall College and Josh Hill (17) from Tettenhall College. The apprentices have been assigned a member of the sales team, who they are mentored by. They also work very closely with the firm’s marketing department.
