Things to consider

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).

About the employer

Staying connected (in every sense) is essential to every organisation in today’s world. Telephones, computers, mobile devices and servers all need to work efficiently, whilst staff, remote workers and customers all need to communicate with each other. Resilient products and solutions are therefore vital – and you will need a telecoms provider who is there to support you when you need it.
