Company name

Face Media Group


Jim Cunliffe

Why did you decide to employ apprentices?

The Face Media Group is a Brighton based business offering promotional design and business printing services with UK delivery coverage.

The company has been running for 17 years and is a small company with 8 employees. The company has employed and supported 12 apprentices since 2010. Some have qualified and moved on, others are still employed by me today and studying at a higher level. Apprentices have brought a young, impressive vibe to my company, so important in today’s world.

I actively encourage all employers, especially small to medium sized employers, to offer young people a chance to get on the first step of the employment ladder.

What apprenticeships do you offer?

  • Customer service
  • Digital marketing
  • Business administration
  • Management.

What do you feel are the advantages of offering an apprenticeship programme over other training or education?

Apprenticeships offer the opportunity to work and train at the same time. There is no better way to learn than by feeling that you are an intrinsic part of a company and helping it to grow.
