2016 Trainee of the Year Andrew Stephenson

Many of our directors and senior managers started as management trainees and have progressed through the nurturing and investment we have made to develop their careers. Each year their contribution is recognised in our unique Trainee of the Year awards.

If you want to succeed, our trainee programme will give you that opportunity to thrive and realise your potential in a flexible and supportive environment.
