Here is what some of our colleagues have said about their experiences working with us:
"On leaving school as a 16-year-old, I was never interested in university or further education, but I did want to improve and build a career. So, the apprenticeship was the perfect route as it allowed me to work whilst learning skills required to further my career. I joined JT Atkinson as an apprentice at the Bishop Auckland branch where I completed three level 2 NVQs and eventually worked my way up to be a Branch Manager. Since then I have completed a Level 5 (Foundation Degree) in Leadership and Management with the Chartered Management Institute, which helped to ensure I was equipped for my current role as a Regional Manager. I truly believe in the statement “ attitude trumps ability” and a modern apprenticeship gives the opportunity to gain hands on experience with the added bonus of being able to further your education. One of the main reasons that I've achieved a managerial position is due to the support I have received from JT Atkinson throughout my career and the fact that they recognised my potential and gave me the opportunity to develop."
Neil Gulliver, Regional Sales Manager at JT Atkinson & Sons Ltd.
"Completing my apprenticeship with JT Atkinsons was an exciting learning experience and has been a great way to kick-start my full-time career. It helped me understand the industry in detail as well as business in general, including the many factors that can have an impact on us and how we manage them. With the skills and knowledge gained, I was fully prepared for my role post-apprenticeship. Even after my apprenticeship, I am still met with endless support from my peers to help me progress my role further to be the best I can, which is why I am glad I chose to complete my apprenticeship and start my career with JT Atkinsons."
Jordan Robinson, Commercial Assistant at JT Atkinson & Sons Ltd.
