Chamber launches apprentice campaign

by John Walding, PR Manager - GM Chamber

As one search ends another one begins. The dramatic climax to this year’s Apprentice coincides with the launch of a campaign by Greater Manchester Chamber to encourage local businesses to follow Sir Alan Sugar’s example by taking on the region’s future talent.

The two-month campaign will focus on making firms across Greater Manchester aware of the benefits an apprentice can bring to businesses of all sizes. Over the past few years the Chamber has helped over 3,000 apprentices enter the world of work, supported by a variety of employers from high-profile names such as the Bank of New York and Siemens to small to medium size firms that make up the lion’s share of its membership.

The campaign runs until the end of August and will also look at encouraging young people to consider how they could benefit from doing an apprenticeship.

Any employer keen to find out more information about taking on an apprentice or about the advice and help available should call 0161 233 2656 or email: recruitment@skills-solutions.org.uk for more information.
