John O’Connor Ltd Celebrating Apprenticeships Programme
On 10th February 2022 Sir Tim Wilson DL visited John O’Connor Ltd ltd as part of the Celebrating Apprenticeships programme.
John O’Connor is a well-known Grounds Maintenance Company based in Welwyn but with operations in many other counties. The company employs Apprentices in a wide range of functions – both horticultural and administrative – and also provides opportunities within the Kickstart scheme for young people who wish to pursue a career in this sector. The visit was truly a celebration of the success of Apprentices in the company – and attended by over 30 people.
The photographs show Sir Tim with Shahzab Ghulam, an Apprentice based in Hitchin, and with CEO Matt O’Connor and three Apprentices celebrating the event by throwing “flower bombs” into a wooded glade.
