Signs Express (Nottingham) have recently taken advantage of an Apprenticeship scheme run by the local council. The scheme has given them the opportunity to recruit an enthusiastic apprentice who wants to learn the signage trade. Full training will be given by the team at Signs Express (Nottingham) ensuring all aspects of the industry are taught meaning the apprentice will have a skill for life, opening up future career possibilities.
Run by Nottingham City Council, the Apprenticeship Hub hopes to encourage young people to develop a skill in order to help to further their career prospects. It’s a fantastic opportunity for both parties involved. The apprentice gets to learn a trade which will stay with them for the rest of their lives, whilst the employer benefits from an enthusiastic new team member with the support and backing of the Hub.

Jane Bailey Managing Director of Signs Express (Nottingham) commented about the scheme: “We are thrilled with our new apprentice, who is due to join the team in a few weeks’ time. The help and support of The Apprenticeship Hub has been fantastic in the recruit of our new team member and the advice they have provided has surpassed my expectations. The scheme is very exciting, offering the young people of Nottingham a real chance to secure a lifelong skill in a trade they wish to pursue. I’d like to personally thank Councillor Nick McDonald in particular for his involvement and support throughout the process.”
Jane was recently interviewed on The Jeremy Vine show, broadcast live on BBC Radio 2, about the scheme and the positive effect she believes it will have to both Nottingham employers and young people seeking work in this ever increasing difficult climate.
