• Canon UK celebrates apprenticeship milestone

        • Canon UK today announced it has recruited its 20th apprentice since the launch of its apprenticeship scheme in 2015. Canon is continuing to grow the number of roles offered to apprentices, who will have the opportunity to work across fields including ICT, Business Operations and Corporate and Marketing Communications.

          Debbie Brown, HR Director at Canon UK said, “Our Corporate philosophy of Kyosei – living and working together for the common good – is at the heart of what we do at Canon. We want to make sure our apprentices receive the best experience possible, whether that’s working in our head office or out in field. The programmes and positions we have created are aimed to fill the gaps in the wider industry and encourage young people into careers in STEM (science, technology engineering and maths). By running our apprenticeship programmes, we hope to bring some fresh thinking into the company, whilst giving young people opportunities that they might not find elsewhere.”

          Canon UK customised the national apprenticeship framework, and worked closely with local colleges to build bespoke programmes to provide young people the opportunity to earn whilst learning on the job. Recruitment is planned throughout 2017 and out of the apprentices that finished last year, five now have secured permanent employment at Canon.

          Lucy Lee, Local IT Support Apprentice said, “My apprenticeship at Canon has enabled me to turn something I enjoy into a career and allowed me to earn whilst still learning. I’ve already gained a wealth of skills and it’s been brilliant to have the opportunity to progress and grow at such a well-known brand.”

          Many Canon customers are now requesting that an apprentice works on their accounts which provides them with valuable on-site experience. Fife Council is leading by example, welcoming apprentice Leigh to the team as a Field Service Engineer.

          Canon is constantly looking to recruit apprentices across the business and more information on the roles currently available can be found at the Canon UK Careers website.
