Steady success across multiple sectors and a need for industry skills is driving opportunities to join this ambitious organisation.
TCi (GB) Ltd is celebrating its largest ever apprenticeship cohort of five candidates as the company increases efforts to overcome industry and regional skills gaps to secure a strong future.
“It’s really rewarding to see that we now have a steady stream of apprentices along with a variety of other trainees working from level 3 right through to level 7.”Human Resources Manager (and former TCi apprentice) Lauryn Deacon
The incoming apprentices will join an existing list of 16 current and former apprentices who have been part of the company’s scheme, many of whom have elected to continue their personal development with further training.
Award winning apprenticeships
TCi and its apprentices are no strangers to the awards stage, having won Apprentice Employer of the Year as far back as 2019 at the NDBLT Awards. Over the past few years, numerous candidates have been shortlisted for “Apprentice of the Year”, with Alfie May scooping the prize at the National Business Awards in 2019 and more recently, Toby Martyn being announced as overall Apprentice of the Year at the 2022 HPC (Hinkley Point C) Awards.
“We hope to continue to provide opportunities for our apprentices to shine and be recognised locally and nationally through awards and achievements. We’re very lucky to have been able to recruit some talented individuals who have worked hard to excel in their roles.”Alex Slee, Financial Director
Opportunities to apprentice at TCi have included Administration, Multi-trader, Project Management and Built Environment courses. The latest cohort includes Quantity Surveying, Health & Safety, Marketing and Leadership roles distributed between operational sites in Devon and Somerset.
Meeting and exceeding goals
TCi is a member of the 5% club which is a commitment to maintaining more than 5% employees in long-term training roles, but has achieved a figure of 20-25% over previous years.
In addition to those currently undertaking apprenticeships, 5 further individuals are currently being supported in long-term training through foundation and undergraduate degrees in subjects including Project Management and Quantity Surveying.
