National Apprenticeship Week runs from February 3 to 9 this year.
The theme is “Look Beyond” and supports the aims of the Fire It Up campaign in reaching out to and celebrating the value of apprenticeships and the range of apprenticeships on offer.
Throughout National Apprenticeship week, Yorkshire Housing will be showcasing apprenticeships as a pathway to a great career.
Yorkshire Housing apprentices, including those who recently left school, plus staff who started on an apprenticeship to enhance their existing skills, will share their stories over the week.
We will also feature a manager’s perspective on the benefits of employing an apprentice.
To kick-start the week a number of Yorkshire Housing apprentices will be joining the apprenticeship team at the largest exhibition of its kind in northern England.
This is at the Leeds Apprenticeship Recruitment Fair, which is at the First Direct Arena on February 3 from 4pm to 8pm.
If you know of anyone who wants to learn more about the apprenticeship programme and Yorkshire Housing’s apprenticeship vacancies, please come and visit us on stand 93.
Since opening the doors to our first apprentice in 2007, Yorkshire Housing has seen more than 100 apprentices working with us, with over 70 per cent securing full-time positions.
Apprentices have started and grown their careers at Yorkshire Housing in IT, finance, HR, electrical, gas, multi-trade, marketing, customer services, administration, surveying and housing management.
Senior people development coordinator Kiran Olak said: “We are committed to helping our apprentices develop in the career that’s right for them. We’re passionate in supporting the success of our apprentices.”
If you or someone you know is looking for an opportunity to shine, point them in the direction of Yorkshire Housing’s apprenticeship scheme, where they can grow their skills, gain a professional qualification, earn above the national minimum wage and build a firm foundation for the start of a new and exciting career.
Applications for 2020 apprentice vacancies will open early March 2020. You can register your interest to receive notifications on our apprenticeship pages.
