Jack Gilbert has been taken on as a Level 2 Floor Layer apprentice by host Inside Contracting based in Northumberland. Jack has been inducted ready to start his new role on Monday 5th September.

As a Flexi-job apprentice he is employed by EN:Able Futures who manage all employment responsibilities, including recruitment, assessments, salary, health & safety training, mentoring and pastoral support.
