Britvic offers apprenticeships at Beckton factory

Soft drink producers Britvic are calling for apprentices to work at their factory in Beckton.

The company, which counts Robinsons, Tango and Fruit Shoot among its brands, completed its first apprenticeship scheme two years ago.

Eight apprentices joined the company’s staff at six of its factories, including Beckton’s Roding Road site. Its next scheme will take place in August this year.

Sue Skinner, from Britvic, said successful applicants will get on the job training and “other development opportunities.”

She added: “Offering people from east London the chance to train through a Britvic apprenticeship scheme is great investment for us. This kind of training is a key part of our strategy for the future.”
