In 2016 Vaultex launched its Higher Level Apprentice (HLA) scheme in partnership with Coventry University. The scheme couples a chartered accredited degree with the invaluable experience of working in a fast-paced, real-time industry environment and enables us to take an active role in moulding the future talent of the cash industry.
We also provide internal development opportunities through VaultExcel – a programme with the objective of identifying employees with valuable, scalable skills, and supporting them in their promotional aims. Since its launch in 2020, 38% of participants are now working at a higher grade than before they joined the programme.
Vaultex work in partnership with many organisations to offer employability activities in our local communities. Over 10,000 people were supported via our employability workshops in the last year – from students and graduates to people who are unemployed or facing redundancy. Our workshops include CV Writing, Mock Interviews and Interviewing Skills and are individually tailored to meet audience needs – with the main goal of ensuring recipients can transfer those skills to jobs at Vaultex or elsewhere.
We champion equity over equality. That’s why we work closely with the UK Social Mobility foundation to find placements for those from disadvantaged backgrounds and with the WEA to help adults who have been long term unemployed or sick, back into work. Our recently founded partnership with Migrant Leaders is enabling two-way mentorship between people in social mobility hotspots and members of our senior leadership team.
It’s not just about giving people the skills to get a job, we want to ignite a passion in people to start a career. People from across the business take part in webinars for students and graduates that detail different areas and career opportunities within Vaultex and the Cash Industry. Our women in Tech have been encouraging future generations of women in STEM through talks and Q&A sessions for students and running coding workshops to inspire youngsters to get involved since 2019.
