Overview

Biscuits! A subsidiary of 'pladis' which is itself a subsidiary of Yildiz Holding. Their 'commercial degree apprenticeship' looks (when you find it on their website, which is not easy) a peach: a tour of the main sales and marketing functions of an excellent consumer brands business. There's a certain level of unusualness to absorb for the interview - 'GOAL 21', for instance - but it must be a great relief to UB to be owned by a respectable Turkish consumer business after years in the coils of 'venture' capitalists.

GCG view

This Turkish owned company is as secretive as President Erdogan when it comes to approaching them. All we could find on the website was pictures of biscuits and quotes about their loveliness. Getting details of apprenticeships from them is obviously only available to those lucky enough to find 5 golden bars in a packet of Hobnobs or discover that they had posted an add on a Government site - as we finally did.

    The aeroplane builder: top flight engineering with an emphasis on everything being done perfectly (for which we have often been thankful) and therefore on hands-on skills - graduate recruits get sent to the local FE college for a year before they are allowed near the factory floor.

  • ACCENTURE

    Accenture is a top-line business consulting company; this apprenticeship is in their IT consulting division, and the embedded degree is a solidly technical one. You will very rapidly be part of building real IT applications; expect to be living out of a suitcase near whichever client you are working for. If you have ambitions to move into their mainstream consulting business, make sure that you understand what this takes: their recruitment into this area is very Oxbridgey, and we are not clear how an IT apprentice could come up-to-status.

  • ARCADIS

    "Design and consultancy for natural and built assets", they say: a top-end global construction company based in Holland but with strong UK roots. This is an apprenticeship that leads to becoming a Chartered Building Surveyor - the top professional qualification with MRICS after your name, and a core role in a business like Arcadis. Long term prospects: the UK CEO is a FRICS; say no more.
