Lander recognise the importance of grassroots talent and are committed to investment in skills at every level.
As a result, we invest heavily in apprentices, offering a range of apprenticeships that provide the formal training and hands-on experience necessary to nurture and mould the next generation of Lander employees.
We currently have 60 apprentices in our scheme and plan to have a total of 180 recruited within the next 18 months.
In keeping with our commitment to growing our engineering and technical talent in-house, we actively prepare our apprentices for roles in a variety of areas via clear progression routes.
These areas include maintenance, technical, engineering, quality and logistics, amongst others.
So far since July 2016 we have recruited 60 apprentices. Our aim is to recruit another 120 over the next 18 months. This has meant there will be an equivalent increase in apprentices on site of 400%.
This will fully support the business strategy to develop employees, rather than recruiting externally. Our plan is to identify apprentices from these groups for different areas of the business.
They will have the opportunity to continue undertaking further qualifications and other opportunities.
