Apprenticeship places at NG Bailey for 2015 have been trebled, and the company received over 1800 applications within the first few weeks of opening. There are roles across 13 different specialisms, ranging from electrical engineering to quantity surveying.

Over 5% of NG Bailey’s workforce are apprentices. They include school and college leavers, as well as those looking for a career change. A number of directors and senior managers started out as apprentices with the company.

Frank Clayton, head of group learning and development, says, ‘We are incredibly proud of our apprenticeship programme and its strong reputation in the industry. This is one of the biggest intakes in our history. From the number of applications so far, we can see more than ever how much interest there is for apprenticeships as a starting point in a career.’

The company invests over £3 million a year in its 4-year apprenticeships and employee training and development.
