Mitie has welcomed 50 new apprentices, who join Mitie’s 72,000 strong workforce in a range of different roles. The new apprentices will embark on a range of different programmes, with 38 joining as engineers, and the other 12 joining in roles in fire and security, customer operations, and project management. The apprentices will work on a range of Mitie’s client sites including at Sellafield and Red Bull Technology, learning and developing their skills on-the-job in their respective specialisms whilst also studying for academic qualifications at college, setting up these 50 apprentices with the tools they need to build long-term careers.
With the introduction of 38 technical engineering apprentices, Mitie is arming its team with vital green skills for the future. For example, some technical apprentices will be trained to install and maintain heat pumps, which are key skills supporting Mitie’s efforts to decarbonise its client’s estates. The scheme supports the development of Mitie’s future talent pipeline, ensuring that it has colleagues trained in the essential skills the business and industry needs, filling future skill gaps by investing in the next generation of engineers.
With this latest cohort of technical apprentices, Mitie is building on its commitment to developing and protecting the future of the engineering industry, with 256 engineering apprentices within the Mitie team. Mitie currently employs over 1,000 apprentices across the business.
Jasmine Hudson, Chief People Officer, Mitie, said:
“As a business that is committed to our people, and the industries we work in, we are plugging future skill gaps and kick starting careers by welcoming these new apprentices. We believe that developing future talent through apprenticeship schemes will provide the essential green and technology skills we need for the future.”
Jessica Kubiak, Project Manager Apprentice, Mitie, said:
“Having always wanted to work in project management, I applied for this apprenticeship role as it is a great opportunity to gain the knowledge and qualification I need, while also providing me with valuable experience. In my role within Mitie Telecoms, I am learning many skills and working in a great team and I love that we’re helping connect people across Britain with our technology. My career goal is to become a project manager so I can help build the telecoms network of the future.”
