We’ve committed through our social impact pledge to consider all vacancies and job roles as apprenticeships wherever possible. And we’re equally committed to ensuring that each and every one of our employees have the same opportunity to develop and progress in their career in the way that’s best for them. 

Apprenticeships are an excellent way for people of all ages to develop skills in areas that will help them develop in their chosen career. Through an apprenticeship, you can earn while you learn, and gain a nationally recognised professional qualification while also getting invaluable on-the-job experience, which can put you ahead of other potential recruits.

We’re proud of the wide variety of apprenticeships we offer, with almost 70 available in areas such as IT and business administration, facilities management, hospitality and catering, healthcare and prison custody, and from Level 2 programmes, if you are at the start of your career, through to Level 7 if you are looking to complete your learning in your specialist area.

Apprenticeship levy gifting to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs)

Apprenticeship levy gifting is a fundamental part of our Social Impact Pledge, which includes a commitment to contribute to the economic, social and environmental development of the cities, regions and countries in which we work. 


We are passionate about helping other organisations with apprenticeship recruitment, and have gifted or pledged £1.4million of our own apprenticeship levy to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) that would benefit from apprenticeship training.


Our approach is to ‘gift with purpose’ to employers that share the company’s ethos when it comes to health and safety, and ensuring their workforce is diverse and inclusive.
