Housing provider to recruit more apprentices

Housing provider Bernicia is looking to recruit more apprentices following the success of its apprenticeship programme, which was awarded Northumberland College’s Apprentice Employer of the Year Award.

The apprenticeships at the firm’s new head office on the Ashwood Business Park, will be in the following disciplines: electrical, plumbing, business and administration, ICT, housing and customer service.

Debra Beattie, head of organisational development at Bernicia, said: “An apprenticeship is an excellent way to start a career as it provides an opportunity to learn a skill or trade while earning a wage.”

The closing date is Friday, August 9, and interviews will be held week commencing August 19.
