KWM has taken on an apprentice through the Government backed National Apprenticeship Service that is designed to boost apprenticeship opportunities in the UK.
The apprentice, Jake John, is based at Kidderminster Waste Management’s new Authorized Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) which opened in Worcestershire this past year. A 19 year old from Huntingdon, Jake began working in the Shrewder Recycling office in business administration in April.
Jake says: “I‘ve been working for Kidderminster Waste Management for around nine months now. I really enjoy working here, from my first day I was welcomed into the Kidderminster Waste Management family with open arms. The people here are all so welcoming and supportive of new employees, helping in just about any way that they can and, all in all, making the office a fun and easy flowing place. This is somewhere I can see myself working for a lot of years to come”.
Russell Hirst, Managing Director, says: Jake is hard-working and keen to learn, assets that are very valuable in a fast growing business.”
Kidderminster Waste Management is embracing the apprenticeship scheme and expects to recruit two additional trainees.
