VPplv and Brandon Hire Station Careers

Attracting the best people supports our aims of exceeding our customers’ expectations and enhancing shareholder value.

Our continued business success is reliant upon the skills, talent and commitment of our global workforce. As well as developing and promoting talent from within the business, our recruitment practices are designed to attract the very best from the pool of available talent.

We recognise the need to train the engineers of the future and we have successfully operated apprentice schemes since our earliest years with our current scheme entering its twelfth year of operation. The apprenticeship offered by Vp is based around a three year NVQ, which combines college learning with work experience delivering a balance of technical skills and practical experience.

We currently have 37 apprentices across the Group, 13 are completing their first year, 14 are completing their second year and 10 will complete their apprenticeships this year. We are recruiting 43 further apprentices to start in September 2019.

A Group Graduate Programme was introduced in 2018 and is now in place across Vp. In 2018 two graduates were recruited into our graduate scheme with a further 2 graduates due to begin in September 2019. In addition, our Groundforce business acquired Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) approval for graduate training which is designed to provide a structured pathway for graduates to gain sufficient experience in their progression to becoming incorporated or chartered engineers.
