Crunchy Carrots – Scottish Apprenticeship Week

It’s #ScottishApprenticeshipWeek2023!! This years theme is #UnlockingPotential – something that Chamber Member Crunchy Carrots have imbedded in their roots…

Crunchy Carrots is a one-stop-shop for all things digital marketing, providing businesses across Scotland with web design, photography/videography, branding, social media management, marketing strategy, and much more. They’ve been around since 2017 when it was just a handful of them and they now have a 13-strong team, including the cutest Chief Morale Booster Alfie the Cockapoo. There’s a real range of skills and expertise across the board.

It’s an exciting time of growth and major milestones at Crunchy Carrots, with the business officially achieving ‘Net Zero’ status last Spring, a rapid expansion of the team, and – perhaps most exciting of all – the opening of a new office in Perth.

To celebrate #ScotAppsWeek23 we asked them the following:

– What benefits has employing Apprentices brought to your business?

“From the business’s point of view, it’s been good to add the value of fresh perspective and have some ‘homegrown’ talent that’s been able to buy into, and develop in, the culture here; something we value a lot at Crunchy Carrots.” – Scott Henderson, Managing Director

– Are you part of the Young Persons Guarantee?

“Yes, we’re part of the #YoungPersonsGuarantee. Working in partnership with Developing the Young Workforce (DYW Forth Valley) has been a really positive experience since the start and I’d like to thank for them for all the support they’ve given us.”

Thank you to Scott and the team for sharing their experience with us!

Apprenticeships allow people from diverse backgrounds and abilities to gain and develop skills. These skills will support individuals throughout their life and in work. They’ll also support economic priorities and renewal, including Net Zero ambitions.

If you are an employer who is keen to get involved, you can sign up to the #YoungPersonsGuarantee and get in touch with DYW Forth Valley to tap into the multitude of benefits your business will gain from employing an apprentice!
