Record numbers of Trainees taking on permanent roles with Member companies
It’s that time of year again that we say a bitter-sweet farewell to yet another MDS Trainee cohort. By the end of April, 13 Trainees will be leaving us and we are happy to say that all of them have been offered full-time roles, with 9 Trainees having accepted positions with Member companies. We also have 2 Trainees who have extended their contracts with MDS, to continue their development, which has been made possible due to the high level of secondment requests this year. We are delighted with the number of Trainees taking on roles with member companies, and the high number of permanent role offers is exceptional given the effects the last year has had on employment rates and job openings. Member companies that have taken on Trainees into full-time roles include Syngenta, Aldi, Angus Soft Fruit, Finsbury foods, Fyffes, Protolan, and DPS.
We are very proud of what Group 45 has achieved during their time with MDS. All the Trainees have completed their L5 Apprenticeship in Leadership and Management and we are currently awaiting their results. They have all made a lasting impression and we will be watching their career progress with interest.
