Despite evidence suggesting that employers are struggling to recruit staff with the right skills, recent research has revealed that only one in three (32%) of UK businesses that qualify for the government funded apprenticeship levy are taking advantage of it to train new and existing staff, suggesting that the opportunity is largely going untapped.
Family-owned facilities management services company, OCS Group UK Limited, announced earlier this year its plans to employ up to 900 apprentices in a range of operational FM, management and business support functions. Open to both new and existing colleagues, the scheme will offer vocational learning through local training providers, further education colleges and leadership development to degree level.
Stuart Rowberry, Resourcing and Development Business Partner, said: “OCS prides itself on attracting and retaining the best talent, and the apprenticeship levy enables us to continue doing just that.”
