Whether you are leaving college, employed and looking to boost your skills, unemployed and looking for a job or simply looking for a new challenge, an Apprenticeship will set you on the road to career success. Apprenticeships offer many advantages over other, more traditional, methods of learning. As well as working towards a nationally recognised qualification, you will also be developing skills directly relevant to your chosen career.
The successful candidate will have a willingness to learn and a keen interest in Human Resources and Business Administration, be hardworking, reliable and have a pro-active approach to work. You will have Maths and English GCSEs at grade 9-3 (A*-D). Desirable, but not essential would be 3 A-levels. A successful candidate who doesn’t have the English and maths will need to complete and pass an initial Maths and English assessment and further training will be given to get you up to speed.
As part of the role you will have access to personal data so the need to be discreet and manage confidential information will be essential.
Preference will be given to someone who lives, works, or has studied in the New Forest District.
You’ll be given the equivalent of a day off each week to complete your apprenticeship study.
