College to recruit and train new Mulberry employees

Bridgwater College is delighted to be playing a key role in recruiting and training the new workforce for Mulberry’s Bridgwater factory.

The luxury leather goods manufacturer is planning to open a second UK factory in June 2013, and has asked the College—with whom it already runs a highly successful apprenticeship programme—to work in partnership with the company and with Job Centre Plus to identify, train and sign up 300 new employees.

The College will be offering a pre-employment training programme to support local people into work at the new factory. Previous experience in the leather industry is not required, as training in the various processes will be given.

Anyone who is interested in applying either for the pre-employment training programme or directly for a position with Mulberry is encouraged to register their interest with Mulberry.

For interest in pre-employment training please contact Employer response team on 01278 655111.
