Bedmaker seeks new recruits in National Apprenticeship Week

Hypnos is inviting prospective candidates to join its operation this National Apprenticeship Week.

The expansion of its production facilities in Princes Risborough and Castle Donington has created five apprenticeship opportunities in bedmaking and warehousing. Hypnos' apprenticeship scheme combines on-the-job training and further education with mentoring and coaching, offering a clear pathway for apprentices to progress into full time employees.

Stephanie Yule, group head of HR at Hypnos, says: “National Apprenticeship Week is the perfect opportunity for us to highlight the value of apprenticeships. At Hypnos, we’ve been training apprentices for over a decade, with some fantastic success stories throughout different areas of the business, from production to support functions like marketing, IT and finance.

“With our usual methods of recruitment, such as college fairs and school visits, not possible over the past couple of years, we wanted to use this National Apprentice Week to showcase the fantastic career opportunities available here for the next generation of master craftspeople. We are committed to supporting the manufacturing industry by providing young, talented people with apprenticeships and jobs that will help them to prepare for specialist roles.”

Running from 7-13th of February with a theme of Build the Future, National Apprenticeship Week aims to raise awareness of the apprenticeship opportunities in the UK, as well as celebrating the benefits that apprenticeships have on individuals, businesses, and local communities.
