One Stop Hire support 'Shared Apprenticeship Scheme'

Together with the HAE (Hire Association Europe) One Stop Hire have embarked on a brand new ‘Shared Apprenticeship Scheme’ (SAS).

The company has employed three of the ten apprentices being trained by HAE members.  The new hire desk recruits have been placed at Widnes, Preston & Wigan depots where ‘One Stop Hire’s experienced hire managers will guide them every step of the way.

Steve Hitchen, Managing Director, commented, “We are very keen to support the HAE and their new SAS as it is important to encourage and train new young & enthusiastic people who will be the next generation of hire managers, the guys we have taken on all appear to be settling in very well and we are delighted at their thirst for knowledge & willingness to learn”

“This is the second phase of apprentices to join ‘One Stop Hire’ as the firm employed three fitters through C.Skills a couple of years ago of which one has already graduated and is a fully fledged member of the fitting team at our flagship Manchester depot.  As there are now many hire companies with an ageing work force it would be great if more hire companies would take part in such schemes as the SAS and apart from training the future generation they would soon realise as we have, that these young people have a lot to contribute to  their business. Any companies that would like more info about the possibility of taking part in the SAS should contact the HAE or visit for more details on the scheme and potential funding available to their company.”
