I've been at ACS for 10 years now and really enjoy seeing the company grow and new members of the team join us. I love my training role in sales as it enables me to impart my knowledge and experience and then witness new starters blossom and grow!

Sam Clarkson, Training & Improvement Coordinator

I'm a first-year Apprentice at ACS, I studied at the UTC and joined ACS in September 2021. So far, I am really enjoying my time at the company, it has been a great experience. When I first started it was a lot to take in, however the training is good and very interesting, and the trainers are very knowledgeable and easy people to be around.

I work in the HR Department as an Apprentice HR Administrator. I have been with ACS for almost a year now and due to finish my course in January 2023. Since I started, I have really enjoyed my time here, I have learnt so much and gained a lot of new skills due to the training and support from my manager, my college tutors and my colleagues. The culture across the business is really good, and I felt as though I fit in with everyone straight away, everyone was really welcoming.
