Automotive data and technology company cap hpi has launched an apprenticeship scheme to support the next generation of digital talent in Leeds.
The company’s global headquarters is based in Leeds, and its 350 employees provide data and software that keep motorists and the automotive industry moving.
The four new apprentices will work in the software department, and if successful, will be offered a full-time job. The company plans to operate an annual intake of up to 10 apprentices.
The apprentices Wesley Spellman, Holly Anusic, Zahid Rahman and Alex Maughan, are aged between 18 and 23.
Amanda Hardcastle, head of human resources at cap hpi, said: “As a growing international business we are constantly looking to recruit and retain the best talent our region has to offer. The new apprenticeship scheme aims to inspire the next generation of talent that will support our growth in the UK, and overseas.”
The company is part of global automotive giant Solera, which operates in 85 countries around the World. It works with vehicle manufacturers, fleet operators and finance companies to provide essential data and a wide range of technology.
Alex Maughan said: “I’m looking forward to working with a great team, where our data keeps motorists safe when they buy or sell a car. Everyone has been really supportive, and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in.”
The company is currently recruiting for 30 vacancies spanning web developers to data analysts and customer-facing roles.
