“Our products and people are here to help countries, cities, communities and organisations achieve better road safety outcomes through smarter engineering, enforcement and education”.
We hire apprentices/We chose to hire an apprentice because…
We recognise that recruiting, training and retaining local talented young people, is the key to developing a sustainable organisation and the foundations of a great culture.
Hiring apprentices/an apprentice has benefited our business because…
It has enabled existing staff to be promoted into senior roles and helped develop their leadership and mentoring skills. It is an affordable route to recruiting new talent within a supported training framework, which in turn enables us as a small employer to do more.

It is an incredibly way of building a strong loyal team within your organisation. Enabling you to train people in a targeted way that suits your business needs.
