When Cool Services needed to expand their finance team recently due to their continued success, it made perfect sense to employ an Accounts Apprentice.

An additional team member was required in Cool Services’ parent company Yee Group, in Burton on Trent. Yee Group turned to EMA Training a private training provider based in Derby with an excellent reputation for high quality apprenticeships in Finance, Technology and Digital.

The specialist air conditioning company needed to expand their team because of their recent acquisition by Yee Group. “By recruiting and training an apprentice, we can develop the right person and enhance their skills while they contribute to the work of finance team”, said Group Managing Director Simon Chapman.

“We have always been a supporter of apprenticeships and have employed many trainee electricians over the years, to join our field engineering team”. He continued “Like EMA Training; we believe that our trainees are most successful when they combine workplace mentoring with education and training. “

EMA Training helped Cool Services to fill their new role with a great young talent in Kyle Tizzard who had recently completed his AAT level 2 and was looking for an employer with whom to undertake a Level 3 Apprenticeship.

“I deliberately chose to do an apprenticeship because I felt that the work experience combined with my qualifications would help give me an advantage later on in my career,” said Kyle, adding “the role available offered me a great opportunity to get genuine experience while studying for AAT level 3 plus the prospect of career progression if I was successful”.

Kyle is a great asset to Cool Services and to Yee Group and has quickly become an established team member. He has shown considerable dedication because while working hard for the company he has: studied with EMA Training, passed his exams with flying colours, kept up to date with his CPD and he has built a professional portfolio. These achievements are incredible when you consider that Kyle has worked and studied remotely, with all the uncertainties brought about by the COVID lockdowns.

Simon Chapman summarised, “Everyone who works with Kyle has no doubt that he has the skills and drive to acheive his ambition of becoming a Chartered Accountant ”.
