DAC Beachcroft will relaunch its trainee recruitment scheme next month following its suspension due to last year’s merger of Davies Arnold Cooper (DAC) and Beachcroft.
On 5 November, applications for 2014/15 training contracts will open. Summer 2013 vacation scheme applications will also open at the same time, with a deadline of 4 March 2013.
