Group Rhodes places great emphasis on employee training starting with its modern apprenticeship scheme.

Approximately 10% of all employees are apprentices. While undertaking a dedicated programme entailing practical and study-based learning, Rhodes apprentices are offered challenging opportunities which include visiting customer sites around the world, working on new installations, the design and commissioning of new machinery, commercial experience and undertaking service and repair work.

The Company has a successful track record of working closely with learning centres. Local colleges, including the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre training school in Rotherham form the main source of apprenticeship training, and are pivotal to continuous education and personal development initiatives. Equally we are privileged to operate strong working relationships with Sheffield Hallam University and Leeds Metropolitan University.

Our focus on training and professional development has this year been rewarded by qualifications at every academic level from NVQ’s and ONC’s through to First Class Degrees and even an M.Phil.  Our strength is in our product differentiation, and this in turn stems from the quality of the people that we train and employ.

We are always on the look out for qualified, skilled and talented employees; whether you are aspiring for an apprenticeship or already qualified - please send in your CV for review.
