Intercounty Supports Apprenticeship Scheme

West Bridgford Estate Agents Mark Bygott Intercounty are bucking the economic trend and have recruited an apprentice negotiator to add to their existing sales team. Ellie Gibson (19) who lives locally in Ruddington was delighted to be offered the opportunity to get some hands on experience in the Estate Agency world.
'I consider myself very lucky to be offered a placement in such a well regarded local firm, who seem to place such an emphasis on staff and their training. I knew a little about Intercounty as my family bought and sold their property in Ruddington through them previously.'
Director Mark Bygott is a great fan of the scheme having employed many trainees in the past under the old Youth Training Scheme. 'I think the idea of an apprenticeship has advantages for both the employer and employee. We get to see if they have the necessary skills, drive and determination to succeed and they get some real hands on experience and on the job training.'
