Our commitment as a ‘no barriers’ employer have been acknowledged with a bronze award from the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) awarded to The Right Fuelcard Company, who runs our Foundation
As our fab foundation continues to go from strength-to-strength, we are very excited to welcome our latest recruit, ex-Royal Engineer, Ryan Hartle. We caught up with Leeds lad, Ryan, 19, who gave us the inside track on his exciting first week as a data inputter with our busy team.
With our third bootcamp for the Bayford Foundation due to start in January 2014, our team at BE Fuel Cards is looking forward to welcoming potential recruits to our information sessions on 6 December.
Potential employees are invited to our offices in Bowcliffe Road, Hunslet where we are hosting two information sessions at 10.30am and 12.30pm – to hear more about the opportunities available.

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.
The event featured motivational speakers including Andrew Walker, Billy Schwer and Nicky Patterson of “Hiya, It’s Nicky!”, – who shared her incredible story of scraping a living at a biscuit stall in a market to building £1.5million empire.

As the countdown to winter draws closer, the temptation to eat comfort food increases.
Our fantastic Foundation was officially launched this week by our patron John Turner, and author and motivational speaker, Richard McCann, the son of the Yorkshire Ripper’s first victim, inspired our new recruits, to never give up – no matter what life throws at them.
John, who champions the Bayford Foundation as: “Investing is all about investing in jobs for the future and putting something back into local communities to generate vibrant employment opportunities” cut our royal ribbon in style. Continue reading

But then I was invited to attend a meeting at the Bayford Foundation in Leeds which is running and paying trainees to embark on rolling 12-week training and development programmes in sales which will create jobs in the energy industry. Continue reading
