Over 100 people turned up for the drop in event where managers and current whg apprentices were on hand to offer advice on kick-starting their careers with whg and give more information about the roles.

In the run-up to the event, Snapchat followers were be able to see useful tips about the apprenticeships and got to see behind the scenes of whg. 

The Snapchat campaign titled ‘kick-start’ also gave a platform for colleagues who joined whg as an apprentice to share their experience with potential applicants.

Using Snapchat to promote the event was an innovative way to communicate with our target audience. It also gave potential applicants the opportunity to see what working for whg is really like. Colleagues who have joined our business as apprentices shared their stories on Snapchat and we hope to inspire others who want to kick start their career.”
