Gregory Apprenticeships Deliver Winners

It is National Apprenticeship Week 2018 and we are extremely proud to support Apprenticeships. 
We welcomed 20 Driver Apprentices into our business in January 2018. All are well on their way to obtaining their licences and becoming an integral part of our operation and we are delighted to see how our existing colleagues support these apprentices in learning their chosen career path by sharing their knowledge and expertise.

We don’t just welcome new Drivers into our business, we also support Apprentices in Business Administration, Finance, HR, Warehouse and Leadership & Management.  Apprenticeships aren’t just for new employees either, we have lots of existing employees using Apprenticeships to continue to deliver. 
We look forward to growing our Apprenticeship Programme over the coming years.

Our team of over 1,900 is highly motivated, whilst staff retention remains a high priority. Our customers therefore benefit from a strong and consistent level of service quality.
