Conservatory Outlet has seen the number of apprenticeships and those undertaking official training within the company grow by 25% after investing a six-figure sum into developing the skills of young professionals last year.

The firm has also recently created two new positions for two young graduates, Sam Allen (finance assistant) and Ben Bradbury (order processor) who have recently passed their AAT Level 2 and Business Admin Level 3 courses respectively. 

Head of HR Karen Starkey said: “As one of Wakefield’s largest employers, we believe it is critical to offer new opportunities and development pathways for our staff and the local community.

“As we continue to grow and evolve as a business, we look to the future. Apprentices are the best way of doing this and we actively promote our apprenticeship programme to existing staff, school leavers and new starters alike.”

She concluded: “As part of our plan to achieve Investors in People Silver status and cement Conservatory Outlet as an employer of choice, we’re investing in our people and futureproofing their skills. A company is only as good as its people and we want to make sure that our team remains the best in the sector.”
