“An apprenticeship with Scrutton Bland worked really well for me as I knew I didn't want to go to university. It's given me the opportunity to earn money whilst having a full time job. I have had lots of support from my team and everyone whilst studying as we have study days as well as time off to take any exams. Everyone is always willing to help and go over anything I might be struggling with” Curtis Jones, Scrutton Bland
