Things to consider

Partridge Green is somewhat dislocated from the main towns. Henfield, Steyning and Horsham are 3.5, 6 and 8 miles away respectively. Personal transport is recommended, although bus routes from Brighton/Steyning areas do pass through Partridge Green village at reasonable intervals. The Company is located 5-10 min walk from the nearest bus stop. The current National Minimum Wage for an apprentice is £3.50 an hour. This rate applies to apprentices under 19 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year. Apprentices must be paid at least the minimum wage rate for their age if they are aged 19 or over and have completed their first year. The minimum wage rates are £5.60 an hour for 18-20 year olds and £7.05 for anyone aged 21 and over. Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that’s part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
