There’s never been a year like 2020.
It forced us all to adapt and to rethink how we work and interact. Not only with our customers, but internally with our colleagues.
NRG and greenbean have always been committed to supporting the professional development of our people. This has remained high on our agenda despite the challenges of lockdown and remote working. In honour of National Apprenticeship Week, we want to share how we have adapted to best support our team.
Industry recognised qualifications in Recruitment
We have changed our approach to training and development in the new virtual world we find ourselves in. We’ve sourced an apprenticeship provider who has enabled us to continue to offer apprenticeships in recruitment. This is all now virtual, COVID secure, and completely remote.
This month, we’ve enrolled another cohort of team members onto recruitment apprenticeships. This will see them all achieve formal qualifications and industry recognised CertRP status. A valuable qualification for any recruiter to hold. The qualification body work with our learners to help find an approach that works for them. Study fits into their current schedule with plenty of support offered by line managers to help colleagues manage their workload.
REC (recruitment and employment confederation) allows people at all stages of their recruitment career to progress to the next level and learn valuable skills to benefit their standing in the industry.
It was important for us to find a safe way to provide career development opportunities and continuing investing in people’s long-term goals.
Karl Brandon, who completed the apprenticeship program for a Level 3 Recruitment Consultant last year, said: “I’ve always been a big advocate for apprenticeships. Having completed two myself I think they are a great way for people to learn valuable skills and knowledge and combine them with real-world experiences in a commercial setting. You also receive great support and guidance and get to work alongside some real industry professionals.”

Our people agenda remains high priority
It’s hugely important to us all at NRG and greenbean that our people agenda remains high on our list of priorities regardless of external challenges and changes. We’re dedicated to supporting our staff and their career goals. We offer apprenticeship opportunities in both recruitment, and business administration.
