We’re proud of all our fantastic apprentices and were delighted to support National Apprenticeship Week 2019. Here we shine a spotlight on just a few of them, from engineers to operations managers, who are blazing their own trail to unlock exciting career opportunities and bring significant value to our business.
Take a look at their profiles to find out more about what gets them fired up.
Level 2 Business Administration Apprentice, Birmingham
I left school in 2014 and went to college for a few years while working a part time retail job. However I had always wanted to do an apprenticeship and when I saw the opportunity with Integral, a company I had already heard of, I chose to apply. The job role sounded like it would suit me and the pay was good for an apprentice.
National Health, Safety & Environmental Manager
Level 5 Operation Manager Apprentice
I left school in 1983 and joined a local plumbing firm where I became a plumbing apprentice, studying on day release over a four year period. From this I learned all about the different aspects of the building trade, and subsequently continued my education with a Higher National Certificate in Building Studies.
Electro Technical Level 3 Apprentice
I wanted to get into electrical work and an apprenticeship seemed a very good way to learn on the job, get experience and work at the same time as well as earn money. If like myself, you are quite practically minded, it is an easier way to learn, rather than pure academics. I researched Integral and discovered they were a reliable company who look after their staff and so decided that this would be the place for me to develop my career.
Heating & Ventilation Apprentice, Level 2, Liverpool
I had heard about how big Integral was as a company before I applied for my apprenticeship, and was excited at the future career prospects this offered. I chose an apprenticeship as it gave me the chance to learn a trade, while getting hands on experience working with highly skilled professionals.
HSE Apprentice, Birchwood
I chose an apprenticeship as I think they are a brilliant way into the field you would like to get into and ideal for achieving relevant learning and experience for a job. No matter how much bookwork you complete, companies will always look for experience and want you to hit the ground running, so working, while learning new skills, was the route I wanted to take.
Level 5 Management Apprentice
When I left school I was a waitress but over the years I have worked in various organisations as a Case Manager, Service Delivery Manager, Customer Service Advisor & Business Coordinator.
