Greene King Brews Up 2,000 More Apprenticeships

Greene King, the Suffolk-based brewery and pub retail company, has announced plans to create 2,000 UK apprenticeships this year.

The news comes at the start of the annual National Apprenticeship Week organised by the National Apprenticeship Service, and designed to get more businesses to offer apprentice schemes to young people in the UK.

Greene King has taken on an average of more than 1,000 apprentices in the last four years, including 2,000 in 2014. Following the latest announcement, the company will now match last year’s apprenticeship intake again in 2015, working together with apprenticeship provider Lifetime Training.

Explaining why the brewery was supporting apprentices so much, Rooney Anand, chief executive of Greene King, said: “We are pleased to announce that we will be taking on another 2,000 apprentices this year. It is so important to support young people to get that all-important first step on the career ladder. Apprenticeships provide learners with valuable skills which will help them to build a career. Our new pledge is a testament to the level of support we provide to the hospitality industry as well as our investment in our employees.”

This year, National Apprenticeship Week runs from 9 March to 13 March and events are being held all over the country. You can find out much more about National Apprenticeship Week by visiting the GOV.UK website.
