Apprenticeship Case Study— Future Supplies
Future Supplies is an award-winning independent wholesale distributor of bathroom and cleaning products. Operations Manager, Dan Hills, said, “Taking on an apprentice with the help of SLB has got rid of the paperwork we would normally have to do and has provided us with the right calibre of person. I recommend SLB Apprenticeship Training Agency as a hassle free way of recruiting willing young people to the team. I’ll definitely be using the service again.”
Future Supplies took on six apprentices through SLB. In September 2011, Callum Carvel, 18, from Bromley, started his apprenticeship. In his role, Callum, deals with customers and works on the company database and website. He said, “I find it really helpful and I’m enjoying the range of work”.
Alex Miller, 18, from Biggin Hill, has been at Future Supplies since summer 2010. She has completed her apprenticeship and now has a permanent position. During her placement as sales and administration assistant, she carried out a full range of office tasks. “I do enjoy working here. It is very good indeed,” she says. “I do a range of things including dealing with customers and working on the company website and database.”
