Our apprenticeship scheme has caught the eye of Basildon Council, who approached us about doing a two-page feature in their Together Magazine.
They came to visit our apprentices and were particularly keen to find out what makes Brown & Carroll a top apprentice employer. It was a great opportunity for us to share with the local community what makes us great and it was lovely to hear so many positive comments from our current apprentices. The article was published in the September issue of the Together Magazine which is distributed to 78,000 households across the borough.
Our newest recruit is 19-year-old Jak Watson, who started his apprenticeship in August 2018. He’s already been thrown in at the deep end, including working on custom made furniture for London’s Facebook headquarters.
“I would much rather do this than sit in a classroom. Brown & Carroll treat everyone really well, we all feel like part of the team and we’re respected,”
