We’ve been employing apprentices for some time here at Magna. It's a great way to bring new skills and talent into #TeamMagna and to help people get onto the employment ladder and reach their full potential.
We currently have apprentices working in a number of our departments, studying for qualifications in subjects such as business administration, plumbing, carpentry, electrical, property maintenance, painting and decorating and horticulture.
In the summer of 2020 we went ahead with a planned apprentice recruitment campaign despite the changes to ways of working brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic. While many organisations decided to put this type of recruitment on hold, we successfully filled all of our positions and have seen these apprentices make a real impact in their departments already.
These apprentices joined us at a really exciting time: with a new strategy being launched, a new housing system transforming every aspect of our customer experience and a people strategy to ensure that we are the place where talented and ambitious people enjoy rewarding and fulfilling careers in an inspirational environment.
There’s a lot going on and a lot to get involved in to make a real difference to our customers so we plan to continue using apprenticeships as an excellent way to develop our workforce for the future.
If you’d like to work at Magna or apply for an apprenticeship, all our vacancies are advertised on our website: www.magna.org.uk/about-us/careers
