C S Ellis Have Undertaken a Series of Interviews with Their Apprentices for National Apprenticeship Week

Rutland-based logistics firm C S Ellis has recently had a series of conversations with their apprentices to get a feel of what it’s like to undertake an apprenticeship in the modern workplace.

C S Ellis have been operating for over eight decades, and in that time, they’ve employed many apprentices who have gone on achieve fantastic things with C S Ellis and with other businesses respectively.

The latest interview released is with LGV Driving Apprentice Dominic Hurr, who says, “Since leaving school, I never really knew what I wanted to do. (With C S Ellis) I’ve actually found my passion and my calling at 28 years old. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do, but I’m so happy now.”

Dominic joined C S Ellis in October 2019 and has since been working towards his final apprenticeship exam and also towards gaining a Class 2 / Category HGV license.

“For anyone considering applying for an apprenticeship, I say go for it. It’s a different way of learning. There are more opportunities, much more than just the apprenticeship that you see initially.” Says Dominic.

C S Ellis has now revealed that Dominic has since gained his Class 2 HGV license, which is fantastic news!

The group have recently taken on two new LGV Apprentices to follow in Dominic’s footsteps. James Buckler-Shurmer and Chris Marris will be engaging in a training programme which will result in them being awarded a Class 2 (Category C) driving licence.
