Hope Capital introduces apprenticeship scheme

Hope Capital has launched an apprenticeship scheme and has taken on two new apprentices to help kick-start their careers in finance.

The new recruits — Jade Thompson and Elle Hazlett (pictured above, L-R) — will be working across the business initially, so they have the opportunity to get experience in a broad range of skills, from finance and marketing to underwriting, admin and sales.

Following the initial training, they can then progress to more specialised roles in the future.

The new apprenticeships are part of Hope Capital’s wider growth strategy and in response to the company’s successful post-lockdown performance.

Gary Bailey, managing director of Hope Capital, said: “Our doors are always open to new talent — at all levels.

“Firms have an important responsibility to provide opportunities for young people, and a strong interest in nurturing the talent that will help the industry to succeed in the future.”

Commenting on her new role, Jade said she was excited to be completing her business administration apprenticeship at Hope Capital.

“I was a manager in a very different industry before, so moving into the financial sector has been a big step change.”

Elle added: “I didn’t know much about finance to begin with but, at Hope Capital, I’m learning new things every day.”

She stated that Hope Capital would be a great help with her career development.

“The environment here is so welcoming, and the people who work here are all really supportive and helpful."
