For the first time award-winning technology provider, Calrom has welcomed 13 graduates to its new office in the centre of Manchester at the iconic St James’ Building. Each graduate will undertake a 2-year programme that involves 6 monthly rotations through software development, database and the test & build team.
For the third year running The Travel Innovation Group has hired new apprentices to join its growing business. The scheme to date has welcomed 16 apprentices to the team.
The apprenticeships commenced in September across Finance, Systems, Marketing and Customer Service. Successful applicants will work towards Level Three and Four apprenticeship qualifications, combining on-the-job training to offer new starters an alternative route into a career with the travel industry.
The qualification will be undertaken over a 12 to 18-month period. Upon completion of a three-month probation period the apprentices are offered a permanent position. The apprenticeship programme is supplemented with tuition, provided both at the Travel Innovation Group head office, as well as at a local college.
In order to maximise the apprentices’ potential, each apprentice receives regular reviews and on-the-job support and guidance from a dedicated mentor at the company.
Michael Edwards, Managing Director of The Travel Innovation Group, the overarching brand which includes flight consolidators, Lime and Aviate, and technology provider Calrom said: “Apprenticeships & graduates are an integral part of our recruitment strategy as they enable us to build up a talent pool of skilled recruits within the company”.
