An apprenticeship is a brilliant way to gain real on-the-job experience whilst getting paid for it. Apprenticeships generally last for 12 months, depending on what level you take, and you will work towards qualifications that will help you gain employment. So, if you want to earn a salary, get paid holidays, receive training, gain qualifications and learn job specific skills, an apprenticeship could be for you. To find out about the latest apprenticeship opportunities, please contact us today on 020 3535 3535 or email us.


Volunteering is another great way to gain useful experience, and at the same time make a real difference to the lives of others. It gives people an opportunity to meet, socialise and work with lots of different people – people you may not usually get to know. This helps break down cultural and social barriers and create much more close-knit communities. An added bonus is that most employers would appoint someone with experience of volunteering over someone without.
