Orbital Recruitment ‘nurtures its own talent’ through apprenticeship scheme.

The Orbital Apprenticeship Scheme, which was launched in January 2013, and gives successful applicants the chance to work in a thriving recruitment business environment.

They receive training, one-to-one mentoring and are integrated into departments to which they are attached, rotated as necessary to assist with finding their place to excel in recruitment agency life.

This years 2 apprentices Joshua Moody – Business Administration Apprentice, and Sally Watkin – Accounts Administration Apprentice are already realising the benefits of working within a fast-paced environment.

Prior to working with Orbital Joshua had been at college studying Electrical Engineering when he decided that he didn’t wish to pursue this career path, so Joshua applied for the apprenticeship scheme in the hope of pursuing his new found interest in business.

“Working for Orbital is very enjoyable and thrilling as there is always something new for me to learn, I also really enjoy working with everyone as they are all friendly, polite and are more than happy to help me.”

Joshua chose to apply for this scheme because he felt it was a fantastic opportunity to start a career, providing a really interesting stepping stone into the business career he desired.

Sally Watkin was studying Beauty at college when realised that she didn’t enjoy it as much as she had hoped and so reverted back to what she enjoyed most at school – business.

“I have settled in very well and did do very quickly, I am surrounded by lovely people and I love getting up and coming to work! I have been helped whenever I need it and I feel like a important member of the team now. Orbital is a fabulous company to work for and I am 100% sure I made the right decision!”

Mark Burton, Director at Orbital Recruitment comments: “We recognise that young talent is the future of Orbital Recruitment and we keenly focus on the recruitment skill set development of these young and talented individuals – knowing that their enthusiasm, passion and drive will see them look after our customer and workforce of tomorrow. We are extremely proud of both Joshua and Sally, who have already proven to be valuable members of the team.”

Orbital are always on the look out for promising and talented individuals to join the Orbital team and urge people interested in applying to start the scheme to get in touch.
