global continues with its commitment to add two BMS apprentices each year to its rapidly expanding business.
This year the global academy had an overwhelming level of high calibre candidates, in total 20 high-level applicants applied and after a series of interviews, six made the shortlist. Each of the six candidates were invited to present to the interview team on a subject matter of their choice, the board reported that all six were outstanding and the effort that each had gone to was just incredible.
Post interview and over the following 24 hours the team deliberated at length who should be selected and global made offers of apprenticeships to two of the many outstanding candidates. Both have accepted their positions and commence their BMS apprenticeship journey in September.
The selected candidates demonstrated a clear desire to join the business and both have recognised the opportunity that global can provide them. Gary Smith quoted, "It was another year with an even tougher decision than previous years, we were presented with a high volume of talented candidates and it came down to the quality and delivery of their individual presentations on a subject of their choice in front of the Senior Management Team"
global will now have six apprentices within their team, reaffirming their decision to cultivate and develop home-grown talent as they remain confident it will cement their status as market leaders over the longer term. Paul Wetherfield (CEO) said "To have the number and quality of candidates apply for apprenticeships this year demonstrates that there is an increasing appetite for roles in engineering based businesses, with the changing shift in the future of our industry and with technology now at the forefront of engineering, these new apprentices have grown up in a world where phrases such IoT/AI/Big Data and Digital Disruption are commonly discussed at schools, colleges and universities. Our business is passionate in developing the next generation of BeMS & Data innovators and also our future business leaders".
