We are delighted to announce we have launched a Future Leaders programme for our employees.

Earlier in the year colleagues were invited to apply for a programme designed to develop tomorrow’s leaders and, following the endorsement of line managers, 150 applications were submitted.

Originally, it was planned to on 20 employees, howevere it was later decided to take on 46 due to the quality of the candidates.

Led by training group the Engagement Coach and Mike Moseley, learning and development manager, the 12-14-month course will include all aspects of management and leadership and each participant will be provided with their own personal progression pathway.

The candidates, 35% of whom are women, have been selected from across business areas, including parts, logistics, sales, IT, fleet, finance, aftersales and marketing.

Sharon Ashcroft, HR Director, said: ‘‘It was such a thrill to see the successful candidates punching the air with joy as the Chairman announced that TrustFord was investing in all of them!

“I was truly excited to meet all of them during the video interviews and have been humbled by the passion, knowledge and abilities demonstrated by all of them during the process.‘’

Stuart Foulds, chairman and chief executive at TrustFord, said: “Investing in tomorrow’s leaders is vital to the lifeblood of any business.

“When Sharon told me how impressive the interviews and presentations were, I was delighted to agree to more than double the original intake.

“I wish all the successful colleagues every best wish in the months ahead as they navigate the programme and look forward to following their progress through TrustFord in the years ahead.’
