Portal Financial expanding workforce with apprenticeships

Portal Financial in Strood has launched a recruitment drive to hire 100 people over the next 18 months, including 24 apprentices through the Kick Start Kent campaign run by the KM Group, who will be trained at MidKent College.

12 of the apprentices will work in business administration and 12 in sales. The company is also planning five traineeships.

Operations manager Nick Blunt said: “We have already enjoyed great success by hiring locally in Medway and have been able to fast-track people’s careers due to the speed of our growth. For many of our younger staff this is their first opportunity for a proper career and we encourage them to make the most of it. The right attitude is what we are looking for more than anything, and we are particularly excited to be taking on apprentices for the first time.”

Anyone interested in applying should send a CV and a brief cover letter to recruitment@portalfinancial.co.uk.
