Burrows Motor Company Welcome Their Stars 2017

The Search for a Star apprenticeship programme culminated in 17 young adults being recruited on the Burrows Apprenticeship programme.

The new recruits had taken part in the Search for a Star programme starting back in October 2016 – when Gaia Innovation and Burrows visited local schools. This involved speaking to students about the apprenticeship programme, Burrows as a local employer, technology innovation in the automotive industry and jobs of the future.  This was followed by the dealership open evenings in January and February 2017.  In April, the students then participated in an employability skills training day, ending with the students having a job interview with Burrows personnel. After that, a weeks work placement took place.

The process began with 91 students attending the Dealership Open Evenings with these amazing 17 students becoming employees of Burrows.

We wish the students well and know they will be shining stars within the Burrows family.

Gaia Innovation will continue to watch the students progress with great interest during the next 3 years and will be working with Burrows to implement a specifically designed (by Gaia) Talent Pipeline Plan.
