SHE Software(opens new window), the leading international provider of configurable health and safety management software, is recruiting two project management apprentices at it’s newly created apprenticeship academy in Manchester, UK.
In partnership with Multiverse, the SHE Software apprenticeship academy will combine best-in-class training with one-to-one coaching delivered by it’s global team of experts. The 18-month project management apprentice programme will blend academic learning with practical application. Leaning on a strong mix of technical and people skills, this provides the opportunity to master essential project management skills such as navigating complex organisational challenges and getting things done efficiently.
By working at SHE Software, the pioneer of digital transformation within health and safety, apprentices gain strong insight into how technology can help the global health and safety sector overcome many of the challenges. These include employee engagement, tracking leading indicators and insight driven decision making.
This move from SHE Software shows a commitment towards on-the-job training and skills development for its staff. It also shows the company’s commitment to diversity. The recruitment process will target non-graduates across Manchester and Multiverse has a track record of placing candidates from a range of backgrounds into the top roles.
The virtual classroom training will be delivered by Multiverse, a startup tech company focused on high-quality education and training through a unique professional apprenticeship model. Multiserve announced the closing of a $44 million Series B funding round earlier this year and has tripled the number of apprentices trained to 3,000 in the last twelve months.
