Expanding Fareham Business Offers Apprentice Opportunity

11 May 2018 by Daryl Tunningley

A national waste management company has pledged to support jobs for young people in Hampshire with the creation of a new apprentice opportunity.

CSG, the UK’s leading supplier of specialist waste management solutions, has created a sales executive apprenticeship at its Fareham headquarters – and has plans to create more roles across its growing business.

Leanne McGinty, Group HR Manager at CSG, said: “We are proud to provide secure, long-term careers within an industry that offers more opportunities for training and development than the public might imagine.

“Our apprenticeships give young people the chance they need to develop their skills and achieve good qualifications, all while earning a wage at the same time.

“We now have a total of seven employees following apprenticeship schemes and we aim to steadily increase that number in all areas of our business.”

The new sales executive apprenticeship creates a role to support CSG’s telesales department, helping to maintain high levels of customer satisfaction. The successful applicant will receive a thorough training and development programme, enabling them to fully contribute to the company’s marketing activity.

Leanne added: “We are looking for someone keen to work in a fast-paced customer service environment, who demonstrates good IT skills and is willing to work accurately and proactively to deal with enquiries.

“Our apprentices receive development through internal and external training, as well as job shadowing. We constantly look for how we can empower our people to help grow the business. We encourage a culture where everybody looks to develop everybody else.”

CSG’s Fareham head office employs more than 60 people, supporting a national network of waste treatment and recycling service centres.

The company operates more than 20 facilities across the UK, with a team of drivers, operatives and specialist consultants working together on the goal of diverting waste from landfill, recovering and recycling as much as possible.
