Investing in the Future: Finesse launch Apprentice Program

 

Earlier this year we took the decision to launch our first Apprenticeship program and are pleased to say that it has been a huge success right across the business.

The program has been designed so that the Apprentices are able to gain relevant experience and skills in the Fenestration Industry alongside earning a nationally recognised qualification whilst earning a salary of at least equal to the apprentice minimum wage.

Finesse Windows Managing Director Russell Bridge commented, “We wanted to develop staff in the Finesse way of doing things – where the best is expected every time; We want to give the apprentices a taste of working in a great work environment and give them the best mentoring experience, whilst achieving the first step in their career goals.”

He added, “In starting the program, we reinforce our ethos in being an integral part of the local community in growing ‘our own’ by employing local youngsters, It really has enabled us to diversify our team.“

Finesse Windows have taken on youngsters in roles right across the business, from Business Administration through to Factory Manufacturing and Window and Door Fitting positions.

“We train the apprentices to have the knowledge and skills to enable them to achieve their relevant qualification (Business administration-level 3 in business administration, fitters-Level 2 in fenestration installation & factory work-Level 2 in fenestration fabrication) and to prepare them for their future careers which we hope will be with us for many years to come,” commented Russell, “We are really proud of the investment and firmly believe it will help us continue with our success over the next decade,”

Although still in its early days, the signs are hugely promising for Finesse Windows Apprentice Program, we believe it will deliver and develop high calibre staff right across the business who will add value, both directly but also through the additional benefit of all our staff having the ability to coach, mentor and train other team members; we believe we are building a team which will meet our business objectives for decades to come.


"I had just come out of college and was unsure on what my next move was, I came across the business administration apprenticeship and was instantly interested by it, and was thrilled when I was offered the role. So far, the apprenticeship with Finesse has been great, the staff are very welcoming & friendly. Every day I am mentored by experienced staff members that support me in my career path and I am being given the opportunity to learn and develop skills, whilst also giving me responsibility as I enter adulthood. Through this apprenticeship I will (hopefully!) achieve a level 3 business administration qualification, alongside the skills and experience relevant to my career.” Chloe – New Apprentice
