After just two years in business Curian Medical Ltd in Birmingham was ready to expand but the huge outlay required to take on admin staff was standing in their way. Until they heard about learndirect Apprenticeships. Now, a year on they have three apprentices and plans to recruit two more as they see this as key to their success.
Curian Medical Ltd provides a range of clinical services for patients. Priding themselves on the highest standards of customer care, they’ve found the enthusiasm and desire to learn displayed by their apprentices has speeded up their growth.
Rob Haynes, Executive Director at Curian Medical explains the appeal:
“We’re a small business but we have big ambitions and we need the staff to get us there. The healthcare industry has very specific needs in terms of customer care, it has to be personal and of the highest standard. We needed someone who was prepared to go the extra mile to learn the business and wouldn’t bring bad habits from previous roles.
“When learndirect lined one of their apprentices up for an interview we were keen to meet him. Troy gave a great interview and we gave him the Apprenticeship in business admin.
“All three of them spend every day trying to prove themselves and going the extra mile. They’ve been a cost effective solution and have provided a great service which is why we gave Troy a permanent position as soon as he qualified.
“Our relationship with learndirect has been excellent. We have a strong working relationship and understand how our businesses can help each other. I can’t recommend Apprenticeships enough, particularly to small businesses starting out. They will be the answer to all of your pressures.”
