Close Brothers to help pay for 20 apprentices in partnership with RHA
Road Haulage Association (RHA) and Close Brothers Asset Finance are offering a ground-breaking apprenticeship scheme for 20 lucky apprentices.
This was announced by Close Brothers with the RHA in their ongoing efforts to support small and medium sized enterprises.
Under the scheme, Close Brothers will partly fund the apprenticeships of 20 students to learn their skills meaning the signed up hauliers won't have to bear the full cost of employing the apprentices until they are making a positive contribution to their business.
" Close Brothers will partly fund the apprenticeships of 20 students to learn their skills (...) "
Richard Burnett, Chief Executive of the RHA says “Our industry is facing a massive skills shortage and, with Brexit looming, it looks set to get worse. This is a ground-breaking scheme so by helping 20 of our members to recruit, train and employ new drivers will go some way to reducing the shortage.”
