Open since 1844, Edge & Son Butchers has been providing the region with great tasting meat for generations. After finding it hard to recruit anyone with the right experience and skills, they decided to ‘grown their own’ by recruiting an apprentice. Level 2 Retail apprentice Dylan Parry joined Edge & Son and has made a big impact. At the end of his apprenticeship, he joined the team full time and is continuing to learn all aspects of butchery.
Dylan said: “By doing the apprenticeship I learnt about all aspects of retail and other retail organisations. I was able to gain skills and knowledge from my work colleagues.”
Callum Edge said: “Apprenticeships provide an organisation with the opportunity to ‘grow your own’, made to measure, customised to your own specific needs and in a supported environment.”
