“In particular, as a training firm, we place a strong emphasis on educating staff and trainees and recruiting the best and brightest people. We also have invested heavily in the latest technology, firstly to ensure an efficient and cost effective service, and secondly to support our staff achieve a better work / life balance. This scholarship programme is part of our focus on supporting further education and developing upcoming talent.”
