Palletline has appointed four warehouse apprentices after being inundated with 100 applicants.

The company has also taken on Juniper Training to design a training programme at its Birmingham hub for its four new apprentices.

Juniper Training is an independent training provider which works with 16-24 year olds, supporting over 2,000 students a year, via its study programme, vocational pathways, traineeships and apprenticeship provision.

"Palletline are helping to develop the next generation and creating a fantastic opportunity for young adults.”

The vacancies, which were advertised on the National Apprenticeship Service, received over 100 applications. Applicants were then shortlisted and interviewed, resulting in the recruitment of four apprentice warehouse operatives.

Richard Southern, head of hubs said: “At Palletline the learning never stops, we have had employees start their career with Palletline as an apprentice. With help and valued support, they have now progressed within the company. It’s in our DNA to support young talent, invest in our people and the future of Palletline.”

Graham Leitch, group MD added: “Palletline are good at lots of things, but we’re particularly good at looking after our people. This programme is an excellent opportunity for individuals who want to gain experience within the industry.

“At Palletline we believe in enabling people to learn, grow and support each other to embrace challenges we may face and make certain our future is bright.”
