With opportunities for long term employment
Every year Muntons run approved apprenticeship programmes designed to offer real world training and a recognised qualification for the apprentice at the end of their term. This is an excellent way for hands-on students to get a qualification, get experience, get paid and at the end of their term stand a good chance of getting a full time job at Muntons as well.
Apprenticeships have always been a great way of learning jobs such as engineering, where getting your hands dirty and fixing problems are everyday experiences. But there are also apprenticeship opportunities in other areas too.
In 2016 Muntons created two new apprenticeship positions, in conjunction with their catering partner, providing an opportunity to learn more about catering and creative food preparation and manufacture. The apprentice rotates their time between the busy canteen and Muntons state-of-the-art Centre for Excellence, spending two weeks in each, four days a week, where they learn about the manufacture of malt and malted ingredients and learn how to incorporate these into wonderful food dishes. Add to this one day a week at college and at the end of their 18 months they will pick up a level 2 qualification and earn up to £6 per hour as they learn.
Apprenticeships are not just good for the student, they offer Muntons the chance to really get to know the strengths of the individual and allow them to develop skills that will bring benefits to the company as well.
