Firm launches drive to recruit apprentices
9:46am Monday 11th March 2013 in Business news
PAINTING and maintenance company Seddon Property Services is launching a recruitment drive for new apprentices during National Apprenticeship Week.
The business, which has an office in Kettlestring Lane, York, will give trainees the opportunity to gain NVQ qualifications in painting and decorating, carpentry and joining and plumbing.
The apprenticeship programme is open to 16 to 19-year-olds. National training manager Melinda Dickinson said: "Seddon has trained more than 3,000 apprentices since 1937 and we are committed to investing in young people by providing apprenticeships.
"Many former apprentices have gone on to senior positions with the company and are now helping us take the business forward."
Last year, the Seddon Group as a whole took on 88 apprentices to mark the company's 75th anniversary of apprentice recruitment.
