As one of the UK’s largest and most successful estate agencies employing nearly 7,000 staff, Connells Group is proud to be supporting National Apprenticeship Week (8th – 14th February 2021) and the apprenticeships currently live across its network.
Connells Group takes an active role in this annual initiative, raising the profile of its apprentices and celebrating both the important role they play in the business, as well as its successful Apprenticeship Scheme which equips people of all ages with the skills that they need to prosper in the property industry.
Since its launch in January 2013, the Connells Group Apprenticeship Scheme has given people the opportunity to ‘earn while they learn’ and develop vital skills across a multitude of professional disciplines including: residential sales, lettings, mortgage services, business administration, customer service, HR, payroll, IT, recruitment and survey & valuation.
The Group also offers an apprenticeship programme for existing members of staff to upskill, focusing on leadership and management development or customer service courses. Connells Group are committed to hiring a substantial number of apprentices this year across their estate agency network and support office locations. The Group also plans to launch a drive to upskill its existing team members by utilising the apprentice levy to train people in areas such as leadership, coaching and business administration.
Matthew Creswell, Connells Group Head of Recruitment says: “We feel that by offering a wide range of exciting apprentice opportunities this is a real win, win situation. As a business it is fantastic that during such challenging times we can offer new opportunities to job seekers and we get enthusiastic, committed individuals who are much more likely to give their all to be successful and build a long-term career with us. Apprentices also get the benefits of a structured learning environment whilst working for the UK’s leading estate agency business. Please keep an eye on our careers site for more information and job opportunities as they arise”
