Four new apprentices are sought
ARGYLL Community Housing Association is investing in the future of its workforce by offering three paid modern apprentice vacancies to young people across Argyll.
The four-year apprenticeships give candidates the chance to obtain a recognised qualification, as well as gain valuable work experience and be paid.
Apprenticeships are available in three different areas: housing and neighbourhood services (which could be based anywhere in Argyll), construction and technical (based in Lochgilphead) and corporate services based in Helensburgh.
Alastair MacGregor, ACHA chief executive, said: ‘Not all school-leavers want to go to college or university and even new graduates can find it hard getting a job without work-based training and experience.
‘ We’re offering a four-year apprenticeship to three young people that will lead to a nationally recognised qualification, as well as the opportunity to gain work experience and transferable skills. Our apprentices will earn as they learn.’
The new apprentices will spend at least 10 per cent of their time working towards apprenticeship accreditation and the rest of the time with their team, doing a real job.
