Why post your opportunity?
Embed the skill-set your business needs to thrive in the future by hiring an Apprentice through the Apprentices for Fire & Security programme. In the first year your Apprentice will refresh your existing team and be a useful and cost effective extra pair of hands. In the second year your Apprentice’s skills will be moulded to the exact requirements of your business. By the third year your Apprentice will flourish and be a valuable member of the team. They will embrace industry changes, adapt their expertise to new technology and show signs of becoming a potential future leader in your business.
72% of businesses report improved productivity as a result of employing an Apprentice. You can receive up to £1500 towards training costs from the Government and employ your chosen apprentice from £8k per year.
