It’s official – our Foundation Patron John Turner will officially open our pioneering boot camp training programme with a flourish, a ribbon – and a pair of scissors!
Excitement is mounting among our 14 recruits and our existing BE Fuel Cards team in the lead up to our 12-week programme starting on August 12 where we’ll pay trainees while we train them in sales techniques and life skills.
We have a wonderful series of guest presenters lined up for the course which kicks off in new offices at our existing BE Fuel Cards Hunslet site. The Foundation’s ‘learn as you earn’ formula sees us invest up to £5,000 to put each participant through our rolling training programmes and pay them a salary for their duration.
Successful candidates will be awarded a university recognised qualification from the University of Derby and go on to earn a minimum £16k annual salary – with the potential to ramp up their earnings as they progress with us.
With 40 jobs up for grabs with BE Fuel Cards, our recruits, who hail from different backgrounds and cultures, will benefit from the vast experience of BE Fuel Cards team who have held senior positions with The Bayford Group.
Boasting a rich history, the Group started its life in Hunslet in1919 after being founded in Leeds by four survivors of the World War I who pooled their resources to establish a coal merchant’s business.
Our patron John Turner is the son of Bayford founder Frederick Turner and a Bayford director for 45 years. He says: “Bayford’s history is steeped in Hunslet when survivors of the First World War decided to pool their resources to establish a coal agent’s business. The Foundation is all about investing in jobs for the future and putting something back into local communities to generate vibrant employment opportunities. We welcome on board our first recruits to our action packed programme.”
We’re already planning our next series of auditions with a difference in advance of our next boot camp. If you’re up for a fantastic learning experience which will fuel your potential to earn a great salary and enjoy a great career with our creative and innovative BE Fuel Cards team – we want to hear from you.
