“We will mould apprentices to fit our business model,” says Experian

In a bid to tackle youth unemployment in Nottingham, Experian has become one of the first UK companies to hire people under a specialist apprenticeship scheme.

The higher apprenticeship run by Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) was launched last month and now five apprentices have the chance to achieve a career in management accounting without going to university.

Helen Emmett, of Experian said: “We wanted to offer school leavers a chance but the cost of training means it is difficult. This Government-funded scheme makes it possible. We will be able to mould apprentices to work well within our business model.”
