Norwegian football star launches new ABAX recruitment programme
The teenage forward, currently on loan at Peterborough United from West Ham United, was invited to learn about the work the technology company carries out, in particular the new ABAX Academy, which provides an opportunity for people to have a four week training course where they will participate in a mix of theoretical and practical training.
The programme puts a particular focus on school and college leavers, with all participants paid and given a diploma for a completed course. The best students will be offered a full time sales role with ABAX.
Three ABAX Academy programmes are scheduled for 2016 and a further four in 2017.
Chris Miller, chief executive of ABAX UK, said: “The recent buyout of the UK franchise by ABAX signified the start of an extensive growth strategy for the company.
“Our headquarters will be in Peterborough and by the end of 2016 we aim to have nearly 100 employees operating out of this city and from new offices in London, Manchester and Birmingham.
“To do this we will need excellent employees and the ABAX Academy is the ideal entry point.
“It is aimed at younger people, for example students or people just coming out of school, but everyone is welcome to apply.
“I would like to thank Martin for backing the ABAX Academy, finding out about the company, our ambitions and our partnership with the Posh.“
The academy is based on ABAX’s successful training school model for its new starters, and there are plans to develop similar academies in all the other countries the company operates in, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands.
