Data8 launches telemarketing apprenticeship
20 Aug 2012: Data8, the Chester based data enhancement company, has launched an innovative new apprenticeship scheme which will see the apprentices taking part learning telemarketing skills, both inbound and outbound telemarketing and the ability to conduct research over the phone. The scheme will lead to a nationally recognised award of NVQ in Customer Services and Sales.
In addition data8 will provide an internal training programme with each candidate receiving an Institute of Sales and Marketing Management-ndorsed training course by the company as well as regular coaching and assessment.
Antony Allen, Managing Director at data8, commented: “data8 is a growing organisation and we are always looking to the future. To meet our ambitious plans we have decided to launch this apprenticeship initiative to ensure we have a team of well qualified people. Initially we are looking for three apprentices but our longer term aim is expand this programme.
“This is an important long term initiative for data8, we have launched the scheme after careful planning and building a robust training programme that will benefit both data8 and the young people of Chester and Ellesmere Port to give them a first step on the employment ladder.”
Debbie Sweeney, Head of New Business Generation added: “Although we normally promote from within the company we have reached a point in our expansion plans where we need well trained staff to meet the demands of our expanding client base. The apprenticeship scheme will ensure we have a pool of well trained telemarketers capable of taking on the variety of tasks that our clients demand”.
