North-East tea and coffee company Ringtons looks to strengthen team with apprentice

A FAMILY tea and coffee business has launched an apprenticeship drive to strengthen doorstep delivery services.

Ringtons wants new workers, including one in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, to help continue meeting customers’ needs.

Bosses say the new starter will join the 110-year-old company’s customer services apprenticeship programme and help its Aycliffe office, which operates 13 vans, serve more than 15,000 people.

The new recruit will be offered an initial 12-month contract with the possibility of securing a permanent role, with their progress supported by Derwentside College in Consett, also County Durham.
