The third and latest group of apprentices have started at Cheshire East Highways. A record number of 11 young people attended their company induction at Brunswick Wharf.

The apprenticeships, all of which are supported by college courses, cover a wide range of activities within the business and last for two years with successful apprentices being offered continuing roles with Ringway Jacobs at the end. This year’s apprentices, who range from 16 years to over 21, are employed as follows: three in Highway Maintenance, three in Civil Engineering, two in Business Administration, one in Finance, one Quantity Surveyor and one in Street Lighting.

Chris Shields, Service Leader commented that “These are really exciting times to bring young people into the organisation, creating fantastic opportunities.”

Cheshire East Highways is proud to announce that with the introduction of these latest recruits, apprentices account for nearly 15% of our employees which far exceeds the average in our business sector. Corporately, Ringway Jacobs (now with 9% of employees as apprentices) has backed this with joining the 5% Club which consists of public and private companies in the UK who want to make a difference and support the UK’s ability to compete in global markets through transforming the fortunes of young talented people by offering apprenticeships and graduate schemes.

Mike Notman, Managing Director said “I’m delighted that we continue to bring in young talent into our organisation, developing the skills and experience needed for the long-term success of our business.”
