This year we have nine apprenticeship vacancies, and we are looking forward to welcoming a diverse group of talented people who are keen to start careers within the transport industry. Investing in apprenticeships is important to us, as it ensures we have people with the right skills within the business, building their careers, bringing enthusiasm and new ideas, and securing the future of our workforce.”
