Work Experience

Whilst we are doing our best to continue with business as usual, the latest COVID-19 developments are impacting on a number of our usual processes and we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Summer Insight Schemes and Training Contract assessment days that were scheduled to take place this summer.

We apologise for any potential disappointment or inconvenience caused. However, it is our intention to re-schedule these in due course after the COVID19 restrictions have been lifted.

Should you have any queries in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us at recruitment@stoneking.co.uk
