How our degree apprentices helped a business to thrive

L&P Springs, a global bedding component company, are a key employer in the Sheffield City Region.

By partnering with Sheffield Hallam University, they were able to optimise their business and develop their staff.

What we did

We worked in collaboration with L&P to develop a programme that aligned with their business objectives, and allowed staff to diversify their skills in different departments.

The new recruits were sourced via Skills Made Easy — an organisation funded by Sheffield City Council.

They provided an all-round recruitment service for L&P. This included identifying eligible school leavers, filtering and prepping the candidates, providing guidance and arranging interviews.

The result

By partnering with Sheffield Hallam University, L&P Springs has already seen the upskilling of two existing staff and three new recruits via a Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship.

Our partners say

"Apprenticeships are great way of investing in your talent pipeline. My advice for any company would be to just go for it. Sheffield Hallam delivered a programme that met all our objectives and ensured we received maximum benefit right from the outset. We'd definitely do it again."
