“What we are looking for from our potential Management Trainees is that they have a positive ‘can-do’ attitude and they enjoy being challenged to come up with solutions.
“We want them to be innovative using not only their ideas but also assessing and supporting others’ ideas. Successful applicants will be responsible for their own learning and should be able to demonstrate a proactive attitude in learning opportunities. We want candidates to also be career-minded, ambitious and flexible in their approach to learning.”
During the two years successful applicants will work in the container, trees and transplants production divisions, supply chain operations, which includes both garden centre and amenity despatch, goods handling and transport and will also spend time in the Wyevale Nurseries’ head office departments.
Assessment will be through regular reviews and assessing performance against agreed objectives. Each trainee will have a mentor to meet with on a regular basis. There will also be a Programme Co-ordinator to support the trainee and to ensure that regular constructive reviews are undertaken.
Andy added: “Upon successful completion of the programme, it is anticipated that we shall be able to match trainees to a suitable role with the company which would benefit from their particular strengths.”
The company’s previous trainees and apprentices who have successfully completed their programmes, have all, to date, been offered permanent employment within Wyevale Nurseries.
