Applegate’s Chief Executive, Stuart Brocklehurst, has been appointed to the Board of the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). The LEP brings together nineteen local authorities, three clinical commissioning groups, two national parks, ten colleges, two universities and the private sector to work collaboratively to promote growth and prosperity in the region.
Under the ‘First Rung’ scheme, Applegate’s degree apprentices will be encouraged to put aside part of the pay rises they receive into a saving scheme of their choosing. On successful completion of the programme, each will have their savings matched if they choose to use them to get on the housing ladder – providing up to £20,000 each as a total deposit.
Internet-based business platform Applegate has launched a new website in the culmination of £2 million of investment in new technology. The new site provides a vastly improved search facility for businesses seeking out goods or services from Applegate’s huge database of millions of products. It’s backed by new processing power, internal systems and hardware – every bit of technology at Applegate has now been replaced within the last year.
