What Employers Think


The collaboration with Coventry University allows our people to study and gain a degree qualification, meaning many of them can then progress within the business - and this is something CEVA in the UK is really proud of. This opportunity improves their professional knowledge of leadership and management skills and also gives them a greater confidence to further drive improvements in the business and the service we offer our customers.

Nicola Hartley, CEVA Logistics Senior Vice President of Human Resources UK, Ireland & Nordics



I wish we’d gone into [apprenticeships] sooner than we did… I think it’s a fantastic opportunity for young and not-so-young. We’ve got to get over this stigma of apprentices being 18-year-olds; apprentices can come in at 25, 30 years of age, and as long as we’re doing it for the right reasons and we’re looking to either develop potential or upskill or re-skill people in the right areas, I think it’s certainly something Vaultex will be looking to utilise going forward.

Paul Hannon, Leadership and Development Manager, Vaultex



Coventry University is our chosen educational provider for the Business Leadership Higher Apprenticeship. We have developed a partnership that has enhanced the quality of academic and in job learning. We work with programme leaders and lecturers to design a program which embeds G.E cultural requirements with current best practice. This has enhanced the learning of our students as they can see the link between theory and the real world.

The benefits for the business can be seen on a daily basis as our students work in key roles on critical business projects generating savings, improving our performance and ensuring we are equipped for future growth. We find that CUC is continuously improving the quality of programmes and the responsiveness of their services.
