Apprentices at Beacon Corporation play a vital role in the productivity and progression of our business.
We are delighted to see that once again, our apprenticeship scheme is succeeding in providing the company with a skilled workforce, who have gained their qualifications with us, and are gaining ‘hands on’ experience that is invaluable to both the apprentice and the company.
The case study that we are highlighting this year is Rhys.
Rhys joined Beacon Corporation part way though his apprenticeship, having been laid off by his previous employer because of the Coronavirus Pandemic and he has done very well to transition from one industry to another part way through his apprenticeship. Embarking on a Business and Administration Level 3 Apprenticeship, Rhys has found his forte in our Production Department, and is now a key member of the team, specialising in procurement and sales support.
As is the end goal with our Apprenticeship schemes, we are delighted to announce that we have offered Rhys a permanent position within our business, and we are thrilled that he has accepted. We look forward to seeing Rhys continue to develop and progress at Beacon Corporation.
Apprenticeship schemes at Beacon Corporation are overseen by Jade (Head of Administration), who herself, has come through our Apprenticeship scheme. Alongside her main role within the business, Jade provides supervision and mentorship to all of our apprentices. Having been through an apprenticeship, she is able to assist our apprentices in their development and working towards achieving their qualifications.
Having seen the positive effects that apprentices have on our business, we are committed to providing apprentices with an opportunity to gain hands on skills within the workplace as they begin their careers.

At Beacon Corporation, we strive for our deliveries to be 'On Time, Every Time'.
At the start of 2020, we set our minimum acceptable target as 90% OTIF for the year. With the COVID-19 Pandemic taking hold in March, it was feared that with the uncertainty, we may not achieve this target. Instead of letting the pandemic dictate our performance, and knowing that now more than ever our customers need a reliable supplier, our team has gone the extra mile to continue delivering the service we have built our reputation on.
As you can see from the YTD Chart below, we have exceeded our 90% target, hitting our ultimate goal of 100% several times this year.
This is testament to the hard work put in behind the scenes by every member of the team at Beacon Corporation. We are incredibly proud of all of you.
