New Lewisham apprenticeship places available now

There are more than 70 new places to apply for on Lewisham’s apprenticeship programme.

The new apprenticeship roles cover areas such as finance, plumbing, care/social work, coaching, IT, admin, youth work, carpentry, catering, animal welfare, and many others. Employers include Lewisham Council, Lewisham Homes, Lakehouse, MITIE Property Services and Phoenix Housing.

The apprenticeships are a mixture of on and off the job training. Since the programme was established in 2009, more than 200 apprentices have been employed within the Council, its supply chain and partner organisations.

The apprenticeships last for up to two years and apprentices will be supported by a tutor and an experienced manager. Once the apprentices have completed their traineeship, they’ll be in a strong position to move into a permanent job.

To apply, candidates need to be a Lewisham resident, aged between 16 and 24, have English and Maths GCSE level A*-C or equivalent ability, and have full UK residency entitlement.

The closing date for applications is midnight on Wednesday 19 June 2013. Prospective candidates can find out more at
