When Yee Group were looking to expand their finance team in their headquarters in Burton on Trent it made perfect sense to recruit an Accounts Apprentice.
The company turned to EMA Training, a private training provider based in Derby with an excellent reputation for high quality apprenticeships in Finance, Technology and Digital skills.
The multi-discipline contractor needed to expand their team because of the recent acquisition of air conditioning specialist “Cool Services Ltd”. “By recruiting and training an apprentice, we can develop the right individual in a way that enhances their specific skills while they assist in the financial activities of our organisation” said Group Managing Director Simon Chapman. “We have always been a supporter of apprenticeships and every year we employ trainee electricians to join our field engineering team” he continued, “Like EMA Training; we believe that our trainees are most successful when they combine workplace mentoring with education and training. “
EMA Training helped Yee Group to fill their new role with a great young talent in Kyle Tizzard who had recently completed his AAT level 2 and was looking for an employer with whom to undertake a Level 3 Apprenticeship. “I deliberately chose to do an apprenticeship because I felt that the work experience combined with my qualifications would help give me an advantage later on in my career,” said Kyle. “The role available at Yee Group offered me a great opportunity to get genuine experience while studying for AAT level 3 plus the prospect of career progression if I was successful”.
Kyle is a great asset to Yee Group and has become an established team member. While working hard for the company he has also: passed his exams with flying colours, kept up to date with his CPD and built a professional portfolio. This has been an incredible achievement when you consider that Kyle has worked and studied remotely, with all the uncertainties brought about by the COVID lockdowns. Simon Chapman summarised, “Kyle’s ambition is to become a Chartered Accountant and we all believe he definately has the skills and motivation to achieve his dream”.
