Liverpool City Region leaders back The Sovini Group’s apprentice recruitment drive

The Sovini Group has launched a major recruitment drive for apprentices across the Liverpool City Region, creating 15 new apprenticeships.

As a result of the new intake, 50 apprentices will be employed across the Group by September 2019.

The vacancies range from a Bilingual Housing Apprentice with Pine Court Housing Association, to a Warehouse Apprentice based at Sovini Trade Supplies’ Ellesmere Port branch.

The Sovini Group is already considered one of the leading apprenticeship providers in the UK.

Working at the UK’s best workplace, apprentices can enjoy a host of benefits including annual staff bonus, on-site gym and bistro, as well as access to industry-leading learning and development opportunities.

The Sovini Group recently hosted its inaugural Apprentice Awards, which celebrated the contribution of its rising stars.

Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said: “Increasing the number and range of apprenticeships available across our city region is vital, both to enable individuals to fulfil their potential and to ensure our businesses have the skills they need to succeed.  It is really good news that The Sovini Group will now be employing 50 apprentices and I hope more of our businesses follow their example.”

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: “Apprenticeships play an important role in the Liverpool City Region. They provide a real in-road into the world of work for young people in our city, giving them the on-the-job training and experience they need in today’s ever-competitive jobs and careers market.

“Liverpool City Council is a firm supporter of the apprenticeship system and we have our own successful scheme in place. It’s great to see companies like The Sovini Group doing such great work in providing real hope for our young people for the future.”

Roy Williams, The Sovini Group CEO, said: “We are delighted to offer such a diverse range of apprenticeship vacancies across the Group. As we continue to grow it is essential we invest in our future, as this will not only benefit our organisation, but it will have wider benefits for the communities where we operate.”
