Small North Wales family business Lelo Skip Hire has seen its turnover double since recruiting its first apprentice four years ago.
Oswyn Jones, who runs the Corwen-based company, took on his 16-year-old son Daniel initially on the Jobs Growth Wales Programme in 2014.
Daniel has since progressed from a Foundation Apprenticeship in Sustainable Resource Management to his current Higher Apprenticeship (Level 4) in Systems and Operations Management with support from Welshpool-based learning provider Cambrian Training Company.
As Daniel’s knowledge and skills have increased, so too has the company’s customers. Turnover has increased by 195% as a direct result of his knowledge which has allowed the company to complete more jobs.
Lelo Skip Hire provides a skip hire delivery and collection service across North East Wales.
