We recognise diversity as our strength, vital for innovation and creativity, and we aspire to build a truly diverse community, which values and respects every individual’s unique contribution.
Over 80% of our apprentices continue with us in the role they have been trained for after their Apprenticeship and that is just the start of their career.
