Northgate has launched a new Client Services Apprenticeship programme, overseen by a new internal apprenticeship mentoring scheme.

The latest apprenticeship offering has seen three new school-leavers join Northgate’s Reading operations to become Level 3 Business Administration Apprentices, in partnership with SkillsEdge.

Supervised by Northgate’s new internal team of mentors, these three apprentices will take part in an 18-month programme of training and development. It will see the trainees undergo a thorough grounding in Northgate’s operations and the daily skills needed to join the workforce as Client Services Executives.

With a focus on personal and professional growth, Northgate’s apprenticeship programme has been prepared alongside the specialist training provider, SkillsEdge to ensure that apprentices are supported in developing into highly skilled customer-focussed business administrators.

Hannah Jacobs, Client Services Manager for Northgate, commented: “Following the recent launch of this apprenticeship programme, we have been proud to welcome our first three apprentices to our business. Northgate is a people-focussed business, so being able to help young people find their perfect pathway into their first professional role is something that we are proud of as a business.”

“In partnership with SkillsEdge, and alongside our internal team of trained mentors, we look forward to seeing our apprentices grow in both skills and confidence as they integrate into a professional environment and work towards their first full-times roles,” added Hannah.

In a further step to bolster its apprenticeship scheme, Northgate has announced a partnership with Treloar’s, the school and college for disabled young people, ensuring that its apprenticeship programme is accessible for all young people, regardless of circumstance.

“Northgate is committed to ensuring our workplace is accessible and rewarding for everyone, regardless of background, race, ethnicity, gender or disability. We aim to provide inclusive opportunities which allow the next generation of employees to develop their full potential,” concluded Jacobs.
