A leading HR and payroll services provider is amongst the first to join together with the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) as part of its #100in100days Apprenticeship challenge.

To coincide with the launch of National Apprenticeship Week, the CIPP – the Chartered association for payroll and pensions professionals in the UK – is working alongside NGA HR as part of its initiative, challenging companies to take on 100 Apprentices in 100 days.

As part of the challenge, NGA HR aims to take on around 60 Apprentices, with 40 of those set to be based at its Peterborough office in various payroll-related roles.

The CIPP will play an integral role in helping to train those accepted onto the scheme, with bespoke training programmes provided by industry leading payroll specialists.

Head of the Professional Careers Academy at the CIPP, Dave Martin said: “We’re delighted NGA HR will be involved in our ‘100-day challenge’ and we look forward to working with them in the coming weeks and months. In many cases, Apprenticeship programmes such as this can help shape the future career decisions of many young people and we’re looking forward to playing a part in helping to find the payroll professionals of tomorrow.”
