A young apprentice has helped Sanctuary Maintenance achieve a significant milestone when he became their 1,000th employee.
Local Yorkshire teenager, Callum Boyd, went through a rigorous recruitment process to secure a much coveted business administration apprenticeship role and is now working alongside colleagues at the organisation’s 24/7 Customer Service Centre in Hull.
As part of leading housing and care provider Sanctuary Group, Sanctuary Maintenance is committed to creating jobs and training opportunities to help young people secure a long term future in the workplace. Through its apprenticeship programme, Callum will now get the opportunity to gain practical on-the-job experience, undergo valuable training and gain recognised qualifications at his local college.
Sanctuary Maintenance’s highly successful customer service centre in Hull is at the heart of its operations and provides customers with round the clock support and response 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Callum said: “Since I was 14 I knew that I wanted to get into the business world and when the opportunity of becoming a Sanctuary apprentice came up, I jumped at the chance. I love the scheme as it provides the perfect opportunity to learn, earn and work at the same time, and to discover I’m their 1,000th employee makes it even more special.”
Sarah Warren, Head of Sanctuary Maintenance’s Customer Service Centre, said: “We recognise the talent that these young apprentices can bring to the business and our dedicated staff will help nurture and develop his skills. The scheme has proved incredibly successful in the past and we wish Callum well in his new role.”
