Experienced apprentices seeking new hosts

EN:Able Futures are looking for host employers to take on apprentices who have been displaced due to the pandemic

Are you looking for an experienced apprentice?

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, five of our apprentices have been displaced and are looking for new companies to host them. They are currently doing apprenticeships in Quantity Surveying, Pre-Construction Structural Engineering, Electrician and Joinery.

They are all employed by us so there is no need to commit to a full length apprenticeship. As a host you just take them on for as long as you require them. Our apprentices come CITB HS&E qualified with CSCS Cards, PPE, mentor support, college enrolment and site experience. 

View their profiles below and if you think one could fit into your business please get in touch with Nicky Field, EN:Able Futures Operation Manager.
