Manufacturer and retailer Wren Kitchens has ramped up its recruitment initiative and is seeking 100 apprentices to join the company by the end of 2021.
The company will continue to recruit a further 100 apprentices in 2022 and, in the next 18 months, Wren aims to become an Employer Provider.
It means the kitchen firm will be able to deliver apprenticeships, internall,y via its dedicated training teams in the UK and USA.
With no experience required in the field, current apprenticeship vacancies are available across all areas of the business including kitchen installations, customer services, transport, HR, finance, engineering, manufacturing, and IT.
Wren Kitchens apprentices are guaranteed a permanent position at the end of the programme which entails a mix of on-the-job training, alongside specialist training partners, and a variety of interactive training courses.
They also receive a wage above the government’s standard apprenticeship salary.
Wren Kitchens People and Performance Director Victoria Fairbairn said: “Whether you’re fresh out of college or looking to diversify into a completely different career, our apprenticeships open up long-term career opportunities for those looking to learn new skills and be part of a fast-paced and forward-thinking company.”
Speaking about her experience as an apprentice Daisy Saltmer, Wren Kitchens compliance administrator, added: “I didn’t know where to go with my career and this apprenticeship has opened up so many new opportunities.
“I really enjoy learning on the job because you easily pick-up all the knowledge and skills you need whilst having all the benefits of being an employee.”
In recent months, Wren’s employment figure has grown 7,200 and it has recently expanded with a new Xena Quartz worktop manufacturing facility in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire.
