Interserve is raising awareness of its apprentice programme and the broad range of opportunities available within the company to help promote National Apprenticeship Week (March 4th to the 8th).
Interserve, the international support services, construction and equipment services company, has more than 68,000 colleagues globally, with 39,000 employed in the UK. The company employs between 720 to 780 apprentices and offers apprenticeships that range from entry level roles for those taking their first steps into a career, through to higher level professional schemes available for colleagues to upskill and progress. There are a wide range of apprenticeship programmes including engineering, construction management and opportunities within business functions such as IT and finance.
Helen Jeffrey, Interserve’s Early Careers Manager, said: “Apprenticeships are a key pillar of our early career strategy because they support the company to grow and develop future talent and fill future skills gaps.
“They are also a fantastic option for those starting out or returning to the world of work to develop their career.”
Maryam Raqeeb is on a business administration apprenticeship in Interserve’s Learning & Development team. She helps run the staff recognition scheme, electronic learning system and maintains HR data.
She said: “As an apprentice my confidence has grown rapidly over the past few months. Progressing like this has given me many different opportunities to develop my skills.
“I enjoy it and I’m excited to see where it will take me. It has shown me what working life is like and has allowed me to gain an in-depth knowledge of the business environment.
“The most exciting part is being able to gain experience as well as a qualification.”
