Apprentices who complete telecoms and sales programme to be offered permanent positions
B2B dealer PMGC Technology has launched an apprenticeship programme to attract school-leavers to the mobile industry
The Vodafone platinum partner is using its office in Sunderland as a test bed for an anticipated company-wide
roll-out of the 12-month scheme.
PMGC hopes to appoint 10 new apprentices each year and offer permanent positions to those who complete the programme.
Seventeen-year-old Nicole Smith is the first apprentice to join the scheme. She was selected from a group of seven candidates.
Smith will work with a mentor to improve her knowledge of telecoms and sales and will get to work across different departments and offices.
PMGC’s head office is located in London, with other premises in Solihull, Altrincham and Edinburgh.
The company’s office in Sunderland has been working with training providers The Improvement Team and Business Impact to develop an induction and training programme, including providing information on PMGC and how it works with Vodafone.
PMGC Technology Group CEO Jason Yeomans (pictured) said: “We have launched this apprenticeship scheme in order not only to attract the best talent as they start out on their career path, but to help them shape and understand the opportunities available to them, helping them to grow and realise potential and skills they may not yet be aware they have and which are vital to be successful.”
