Future prospects

Pete Jordan has employed several Apprentices over the years and has a strong belief in developing young people’s skills for long term career prospects. Most of Pete’s former Apprentices are still working for him so the opportunity is there for hard working and willing to learn individuals.

Things to consider

The company has stipulated that the successful applicant will either have their own transport or be on the way to obtaining a driving licence. The company has said that short-term pick-ups can be arranged but there will be an expectation that Apprentices will be fully mobile within the first 6 months of the Apprenticeship. Predominantly, pick ups / drop offs can be arranged from the following locations : Westbury On Trym, Sneyd Park, Clifton, Redlands, BS9 / BS10 postcodes within reason. So these would be preferred locations for applicants who aren’t yet in possession of transport. There will be working in inclement conditions as the majority of work will be undertaken outside in the winter months.
