The brewer says it is planning to increase the number of spaces on its award winning apprenticeship programme even further over the coming weeks
Greene King’s apprenticeships support the development of its next generation of managers, with programmes that run from Level 2 to Level 7, which is post-graduate degree level.
The company offers apprenticeships across the country with opportunities in everything from front of house and kitchen roles all the way up to management and supervisory levels. More than 40% of apprentice vacancies at Greene King were filled by 16-18 year olds in 2019-2020, an increase of 3% on the previous year.
‘Our apprenticeship programme enables young people to earn while they learn, offering the best of both worlds,’ said Graham Briggs, head of apprenticeships and employability programmes.
‘With a particularly challenging jobs market at the moment, we are pleased that we can continue providing roles to young people at the start of their careers. Apprenticeships play a hugely important role in social mobility, and we are continuing to invest in our programme so we can provide more opportunities and quality training for young people entering the hospitality industry. We look forward to welcoming more new team members and offering them an exciting and rewarding career with us.’
