GFM believe in developing young people into their careers through hands on experience and a hard work ethic.
This process gives them a great chance to prepare for the world of work in real situations.
In view of this, the company made it their motive in 2009 to work with local colleges and apprenticeship schemes to encourage young men and women into the maintenance roles throughout the business.
The first two apprentices have proven to be very successful and we look forward to working with more in the future.

When people ask me to describe GFM I always answer “Big enough to deliver, small enough to care”. I love working for GFM, as every person makes GFM what it is and my role means I get to meet everyone and get to know them.
I feel lucky to work in an environment where everything we do has a positive impact for everyone that walks through our doors-the Trust, Care and Support from GFM to constantly maintain such high standards at all times is why I am proud to work here.
With such a varied client base and nationwide coverage, there are always opportunities for career development at GFM. Since joining my role has developed extensively and I have been encouraged to actively engage with all levels of management, there are no bad ideas and innovation is encouraged making the future very exciting.
The contract I was working on transferred to GFM over 10 years ago and for 8 years I worked as a cleaner, but when I was ready to develop GFM offered me the opportunities, development and support that to match my own aspirations and I am now the manager of the same team. I love it!
I have worked for GFM for 9 years and love my role which is busy and varied and has enabled me to develop and grow whilst building long lasting relationships with my colleagues, the School staff and contractors.
Having worked with GFM for over 11 years I have always felt encouraged and supported to progress, I started in the leisure centre and have progressed to helpdesk operations whilst always been able to maintaining a good work life balance. People are the key to our teams and I have always had good relationships with my teams and that has meant I can always be myself, meaning I can fully enjoy my career with GFM.
