Pareto Sales Surgery - Apprenticeships: How can we benefit
With Chancellor Rishi Sunak announcing a “brand new bonus” for employers hiring apprentices over the next six months we have our very own Andy Wiles (Apprenticeship Sales Director) joining Jack Smith on Friday's Sales Surgery. They will be discussing ways in which you can benefit from this scheme in the next 6 months. Unlike the old apprenticeship schemes, graduates, existing employees, directly sourced new hires, as well as those coming straight from school or college are all eligible to be on-boarded as apprentices which you can fund using your digital ‘levy pot’.
