Flint-based NorthWales Media Limited says apprenticeships are central to the growth the technology business which is committed to staff training and development.
The company, which has two apprentices in its workforce of 11, is striving to become a centre of excellence for marketing and IT services in North Wales.
Cambrian Training Company delivers Apprenticeships in Management at Levels 3 and 4 for the company, which has invested in a state-of-the-art business centre designed around its staff.
During the pandemic, apprentices have been supported remotely and NorthWales Media’s managing director Phill John says their communication skills have improved greatly, attracting compliments from customers.
By giving staff time to research and try different software platforms to manage their work and drive efficiency and profitability, the company has retained 99% of its existing customers and increased services to them. Around 30% of staff time is dedicated to learning new skills and innovation.
“NWM will only be successful in our industry with continued staff training and we expect to take on more apprentices in the near future due to the success of our partnership with Cambrian Training. We acknowledge that they have been an asset to the development of both staff training and support.”
The Apprenticeship Programme in Wales is funded by the Welsh Government with support from the European Social Fund.
