Crystal Clean have always invested in youth employment but historically it has been on the cleaning side of the business. Last year Sarize Hill the company Operations Director interviewed a young lady that inspired the creation of their entrepreneurial apprenticeship programme. “In the early stages Storm started working with the cleaning teams, as she had left school with no qualifications, she applied for the trainee cleaning role. It became clear that Storm’s lack of qualifications wasn’t through an aversion to hard work. She showed a brilliant work ethic and real interest in the business and off her own back started regularly sorting out stock and supplies to make things easier to manage. Very quickly we saw a decrease in misplaced stock and other team members were able to locate supplies more efficiently. After a period of consultation with the management team we decided the create the Apprenticeship programme. We offered Storm a position where she would take responsibility for stock, supplies and allocation, whilst learning business management through the apprenticeship. With the implementation of the new CRM, Storm will be managing all the stock, supplies and client requests from the new site, taking full responsibility in this area. We have only been in the new site 4 days, but she has already got the stock organised. We are so glad to have her on board”
Once the Apprenticeship programme is fully running, Crystal Clean Service will look to take on more young people with drive and enthusiasm to start a long-lasting career in the sector, for more information on any future positions get in touch with the team today.
