Apprenticeships

We know it’s a cliché, but we do genuinely believe that investing in young people is the future for digital. That’s why we love apprenticeships. We have been working with a company called Baltic Training who provide classroom-based learning whilst we provide the hands-on experience. There are so many benefits to hiring an apprentice that in the same month we hired two!

  • The existing Hive team gain valuable experience in mentoring and teaching
  • We have the opportunity to mould our future workforce whilst providing career opportunities to young people in and around Sheffield
  • Training in the areas of our industry that interest you the most — We give our apprentices’ access to all areas of the business so that can explore different careers in Digital.

Work Experience

It’s a fact that there aren’t enough experienced people to go round, but I feel that the best way of learning is hands-on experience. We’ve taken on apprentices and we’ve employed people who are tech-minded but have no experience at all. I think the argument about that being too much of an overhead is rubbish. Yes, there’s a bit to start with, but you can quickly get people hands-on with a project and not charge the client until they are adding value. It’s about spotting people in your network and being prepared to give them the opportunity.
