2020 Apprenticeship Recruitment Postponed

As a business we’re proud of our heritage and focused on our future.

2020 Apprenticeship Recruitment

In light of the continuing impact and spread of the Covid-19 virus, we have taken the very difficult decision to postpone our 2020 apprenticeship recruitment until further notice. 

We would like to reassure everyone that has already applied, and those that are still hoping to, that this is a postponement and not a cancellation. NG Bailey has been training apprentices since 1934 and we fully intend that this year will be no different. 

We have taken this decision on safety grounds; with the situation in the UK changing daily and stricter measures on social distancing being implemented, we were unable to run our apprentice assessment centres in a way which would protect the safety of our employees and apprentice candidates. 

We have contacted those candidates who have already been selected for assessment to let them know and for now, postponed recruitment for those apprenticeships that were still open. 

We will be updating this page when the situation changes so please check back later for further information.
