Close Brothers Asset Finance recruits team of graduates to aid growth

Despite the ongoing pressures of COVID-19, Close Brothers Asset Finance has maintained its investment in young people, with the latest action involving bringing on board a team of 10 graduates to work on new customer attraction. The team will be based out of the firm’s Manchester office in Trafford Park.

As part of the company’s continued commitment to diversity and inclusion, the graduates represent a diverse range of backgrounds.

John Fawcett, CEO of Close Brothers Asset Finance’s Transport division said: “This is a very difficult time for many job seekers, particularly those without much ‘on the job’ experience, and we are delighted to welcome this new team to Close Brothers Asset Finance.

“We know, from our own experience, that investing today will pay dividends tomorrow and, with the training we’re going to offer them, I’m very confident we’ll be setting the graduates on their own paths to success, and I look forward to watching their progress.”

Over recent times the firm has invested heavily in young people, including:

  • Supporting 80 engineering apprentices as part of a scheme designed to help SMEs recruit and train a new generation of advanced engineering workers
  • Helping finance the training of 20 young Large Goods Vehicle drivers at small firms with less than 20 vehicles
  • Attracting new talent into the sales teams through our industry-leading Sales Training Academy with the aim of not only training new sales people, but also redressing the gender imbalance in sales roles
