Things to consider

This vacancy is to start immediately therefore you must be available to start before applying. The closing date, interview date and start date are subject to change. This vacancy may close early if sufficient applications are received. Please ensure you apply early to avoid disappointment.

Individuals are able to undertake an apprenticeship at a higher level than a qualification they currently hold, including any previously completed apprenticeships. Individuals can also undertake an apprenticeship at the same level, or lower level than a qualification they already hold as long as the new apprenticeship allows for new skills to be acquired and the content of the training is materially different from any previous qualification or apprenticeship. For example, if you already have a Level 4 qualification you still may be able to complete an apprenticeship at any level providing you meet the eligibility criteria and are learning substantive new skills. Please note, if you have been progressed, you will be contacted to complete a telephone interview. Please expect to receive a call from us within 5 working days. Applicants must go through this telephone procedure for your application to be progressed. 

Please be aware that as Northern Skills Group provide a recruitment matching service, we will also consider you for roles which pay the Apprenticeship National Minimum Wage.

Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that’s part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).

About the employer

If you grew up in the Tees Valley anytime since the 1940’s you’ll probably know R Clarke and Sons Butchers. It was a successful family business with a fantastic reputation for providing excellent service and high quality produce - all at a very fair price. We have continued in that tradition and expanded from the old butchers shop to meet the changing needs of our customers, but we’ve never shifted from our guiding principles of service, quality and price. We still cook and prepare in the original premises where the Clarke family lived and worked but our offering has expanded to business lunches, event catering, on the go vans and wholesale sandwiches.
