The recruitment of talented and ambitious individuals is paramount to The Waterdale Group. As such the group continues to support the Technical Apprenticeship Scheme to map out the company’s future.
Apprentices are aged 16 or over and combine work with studying to a structured programme in order to gain skills and knowledge in a specific job. By working with experienced staff, an apprentice learns job-specific skills which assist with the academic side of the course and ultimately the progression towards a qualified role.
Our latest apprentice, Charlie Quirk, has been recruited to work across all companies of The Waterdale Group and will be spending part of his week working alongside the eSpida team. Speaking about joining the business, Charlie says, “I am very happy to have been selected as The Waterdale Group’s latest apprentice. The apprenticeship will help me to develop my technical skills whilst gaining a recognised qualification. Everyone at Waterdale has been really welcoming and I feel confident that I am working alongside the right people to help me focus on my career goals.”
The Waterdale Group has a positive history of working with young apprentices. Joel Campbell originally joined the group as an apprentice in 2012 and following the successful completion of his accreditation (Level 4 City and Guilds and CompTia A+ and Network+ Industry certification) Joel was offered a permanent role within the infrastructure team. He comments, “The apprenticeship scheme provided me with a good foundation for working life. Working whilst studying enabled me to learn from colleagues and expand the knowledge I was gaining at college. Now, 5 years on, I have a great job with a fantastic company and feel proud that the group chose to invest in me and my skills.”
