Daisy on the hunt for new apprentices

Following the successful launch of its apprentice scheme in 2012, Daisy Communications is on the hunt for further new talent as it continues to offer opportunities to people in the North West.

Working with local apprenticeship specialists, TrainingStation, Daisy is looking for five 16-24 year olds to start a customer service apprenticeship at its head office in Nelson.

The business is a strong advocate of apprenticeships, none more so than CEO and founder Matthew Riley, who began his own career as an apprentice and recently advised Lord Sugar on the hiring on his own apprentice on the popular BBC show.

Lisa Whiteoak, TrainingStation director, said: “Daisy invests a lot of time into the training and development of its staff and following previous in-house apprenticeship trials, it has now decided the time is right to employ some fresh recruits.”

The link-up between Daisy and TrainingStation comes as a result of previous apprenticeship successes at the business, including the appointment of 23-year-old, Jonathan Young, who was offered the role of a provisioning executive despite having no prior knowledge of the telecommunications industry.

Lisa added: “Working for Daisy is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to develop a career in the communications industry; there are great promotion and earning opportunities available for hard working apprentices.”

Marie Wheatley, Daisy’s group head of HR, explained the importance of encouraging fresh talent to join Daisy to contribute towards its growing success.

She said: “Daisy is committed to offering jobs to skilled workers who display the attributes required to succeed in a fast-paced business environment. The great thing about an apprenticeship is that both the business and the individual realise substantial benefits from the scheme.”

The year-long apprenticeships will run from August and provide candidates with many transferable attributes such as communication and organisation skills and a professional business manner. Marie added: “We are looking forward to working with TrainingStation to find our new apprentices and to help them develop their careers and skills with Daisy.”
