Hopkinsons takes on apprentices thanks to Futures for Business

Nottingham city centre vintage shop and café, Hopkinsons, has been working with Futures for Business over the past few years. The company called on Futures to help recruit and train two brand new apprentices, Andy and Fiona.


The pair both jumped at the chance to take on their customer service training qualification, which they felt would give them the opportunity to broaden their creative knowledge and skills.

Hopkinsons Manager, Andy, whole heartedly recommends working with Futures for Business, as they made the process of recruitment and training for both apprentices simple and effective. Not only does the pair enhance his business offer, they also help to run a thriving shop and café in the heart of the city.

Andrew, Futures’ Business Engagement Manager, was there from start to finish, and helped to find the right candidates, as well as providing a supporting hand to both the employer and the young people themselves.
