Call mangement firm Liquid 11 is the latest business to add its support to the Suffolk 500 campaign to generate 500 apprenticeship opportunities in the county.

Lowestoft-based Liquid 11, a member of the Future50 listing on up-and-coming businesses in Suffolk and Norfolk, is to take on an apprentice in its marketing and PR department.

Elodie Partridge, who leads the marketing and PR team, said: “We are delighted to be a part of this exciting campaign that will make a real difference to the region and a business like Liquid 11.”

“As a business we have taken on apprentices before and just as our business is at the cutting edge of supporting firms across the region and the UK we want to give young people the opportunity to learn from us and be ready to enter the workforce whatever future journey they wish to take.”

The Suffolk 500 campaign, which has so far attracted pledges from employers in respect of more than 200 apprentices, is being managed by the Apprenticeships Suffolk Business Service (ASBS) and is being delivered in partnership with workforce development specialist TCHC and Suffolk Chamber of Commerce on behalf of Suffolk County Council.

Lorraine Gimson, head of ASBS, said: “We welcome Liquid 11 on board our Suffolk 500 campaign, where we endeavour to offer each and every employer continuous support to ensure that the Apprenticeship scheme runs smoothly.

“Our aim is to promote all age apprenticeships to Suffolk employers, highlighting why supporting an Apprenticeship is easier than businesses may think, and to celebrate the range of Apprenticeships available in different sectors.
