The Employee Value Proposition that sets Appris apart
“Our continued investment in facilities and equipment would amount to nothing without the Appris employees to bring this to life in the delivery of our teaching, learning and assessment services. As a private engineering apprenticeship training provider we continuously benchmark salaries, compensation and benefits to reflect the higher end offered in our sector. Equally, we constantly work at creating and maintaining an inclusive, positive work environment based on trust and support throughout the organisation. We see our achievements and our pursuit of excellence as being a direct result of the efforts of all, where we share our successes as one and face our challenges as one.
As the Managing Director, the support, recognition and wellbeing of Appris employees remains central to all my decisions. I am delighted to see this recognised by the team in their comments below.”
John Igoe, Managing Director
“I love the autonomy and the trust placed in me to be able to get on, without being micro-managed.”
“I like the ability to be able to have a certain amount of influence and being accepted/involved to have a direction the business is heading.”
“Working at Appris at the moment for me would be having good team of advisors that are willing to go the extra mile and put the effort into keeping their many plates spinning to provide the best service to the learners.”
I work in an environment that is encouraging, supportive, challenging, rewarding, growing, team orientated, understanding, flexible, caring. I am trusted to do my job, I have autonomy, Appris, brings me happiness and makes me happy, Appris has and believes in its core values, at Appris, good is not good enough. Appris makes me want to be my best and do my best every day!”
“I have only been at Appris for just over a month, but in that time I have found that all the staff have been very friendly and helpful with me settling into my new role.”
“The value of my work here is not only recognised and supported by the directors and the team of people I work with, but also by the majority of my learners. Here, I have great confidence and trust in the people I work with. I feel like this is a fair and reasonable place to work and where I have some influence over the way I (as an experienced practitioner) can execute my duties without being overly micro managed or having to follow endless pointless, needless and overly bureaucratic policies and processes. We are a good flat structure as an organisation and everyone I work with is approachable, amiable and welcoming. More importantly, everyone ‘brings something to the party’ and adds value to the organisation. I think that everyone here actually deserves their money. The culture of our organisation and the people here are a big part of why I love my job here.
