We’re marking a landmark week where our fab Foundation – spearheaded by our Hunslet based BE Fuel Cards team – has promoted four of our recruits into full time employment – and launched a second bootcamp with thirteen trainees.

Creating dozens of short term jobs and hundreds of long-term career opportunities, we are investing up to £5,000 to put each recruit through our training programme and paying them a salary for the duration. Successful candidates will be awarded a recognised qualification from The University of Derby.

Our first four graduates – who were previously long-term unemployed – are now earning a minimum £16k annual salary with BE Fuel Cards team, with the potential to ramp up their earnings.

Bootcamp recruits hail from wide-ranging backgrounds – some are long-term unemployed and others have previously worked on temporary contracts.

We are sourcing candidates via non-traditional routes thanks to the great support we are receiving from partners and community organisations such as the Probation Service and the Prince’s Trust.

Recruitment is also underway for our third bootcamp – due to start in January 2014.  Would-be employees are invited to our offices in Bowcliffe Road, Hunslet on 6 December for two information sessions held at 10.30am and 12.30pm to hear more about the opportunities available.

Foundation leader, June Forsyth, said: “This week marks another milestone in the foundation’s formative development as we celebrate our first graduates progressing to full time roles – and welcome our new recruits.

“Forging partnerships with a wealth of wonderful community organisations is enabling us to unearth some fantastic talent and we look forward to meeting more potential employees – with or without telesales experience – on 6 December.”

Razaquat Hussain, a graduate of the first bootcamp, said: “It’s absolutely brilliant to be in a full-time job with BE Fuel Cards. If someone had said to me a year ago that I would have this opportunity I wouldn’t have believed them – I’m now in the process of buying my own house and life couldn’t be any better!”
