The Caravan and Motorhome Club provides Apprentice opportunities
The Caravan and Motorhome Club is the UK’s number one rated touring Club and a major UK tourism player representing over 1.1 million members.
The Club believes in delivering exceptional customer service and invests in its 1,300 plus workforce to ensure they have the necessary skills to perform their roles.
Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, was recently quoted in the press as saying “We need world-class apprenticeships.”
In January 2023 the Club was proud to launch its Apprenticeship scheme and welcomed its first cohort of apprentices into the Club’s award-winning Contact Centre on 13 March 2023.
The apprentices are an enthusiastic group of people who are enjoying learning about how the Club helps its members to get the best from the great outdoors and developing their professional skills in the process.
The apprentices are working through a 12 month Customer Services Level 2 programme and the Club is supporting them every step of the way, in conjunction with an external training provider.
Due to the popularity and success of the initial apprentice programme, the Club is also currently recruiting for its second apprentice cohort into the Contact Centre which will start on 4th September 2023 for a 15 month period. Further information can be found here.
This is an exciting new venture for the Club which it hopes to build upon and will also look at every opportunity to upskill current employees via an apprentice programme, if it is the appropriate method of training.
The Club, which is a major employer in the local Sussex area, has been delighted to also welcome a number of work experience students through June and July at its offices in East Grinstead. The students have observed and participated in several areas of the business and have found this an invaluable experience to help them decide their future routes of study.
Kerry Upton, Caravan and Motorhome Club Head of HR, said: “A large percentage of our staff stay for many years proving that the Club is a great place to work, surrounded by supportive colleagues and leaders. We believe this is the ideal environment to welcome apprentices and work experience students and help them to develop skills for their future careers. We strive to create a learning culture and have received much positive feedback from our apprentices. As an organisation that was founded in 1907 we believe it is right that we do all we can to create high-quality opportunities for young people to develop.”
