Article 8 November 2022 Mitie shapes the future workforce with 50 new apprentices We are delighted to welcome 50 new apprentices to a range of roles across Mitie. Of the new cohort, 38 apprentices are joining as engineers, who will be trained on vital green skills which help to decarbonise our client’s estates. Alongside the future for our clients, we’re also committed to developing the future of the industry, with an existing 256 engineering apprentices across the organisation. The 12 remaining new starters are taking on an exciting variety of roles which include fire and security, customer operations and project management. Our apprenticeship scheme supports the development of Mitie’s future talent pipeline, ensuring that apprentices are equipped with all the skills that they need to build long-term careers, and that we as an organisation are trained on all the skills needed for our business and wider industry to thrive. Reflecting on the onboarding of our latest apprentices, Jasmine Hudson, Chief People Officer said: “As a business that is committed to our people, and the industries we work in, we are plugging future skill gaps and kick-starting careers by welcoming these new apprentices. We believe that developing future talent through apprenticeship schemes will provide the essential green and technology skills we need for the future.” We also spoke to Jessica Kubiak, Project Manager Apprentice, who reflected on her experiences so far: “Having always wanted to work in project management, I applied for this apprenticeship role as it is a great opportunity to gain the knowledge and qualification I need, while also providing me with valuable experience. In my role within Mitie Telecoms, I am learning many skills and working in a great team, and I love that we’re helping connect people across Britain with our technology. My career goal is to become a project manager so I can help build the telecoms network of the future.” The apprentices will be working across a range of client sites, including at Sellafield and Red Bull Technology. They’ll be learning and developing their skills on-the-job in their respective specialisms whilst also studying for academic qualifications at college. We look forward to hearing more about their experiences!
