We are offering 3 new apprenticeship roles for Wythenshawe residents. If successful, they will be completing L2 Fence Installer apprenticeship (salary £9.50 per hour), ideally starting in April/May.

We are offering a pre-recruitment training programme called ‘Low Carbon Careers’ which is an employer-led programme for young people aged 18-25 looking to build a career in the green economy. As we are recruiting for these apprentices we are now planning to run our first Manchester course in Wythenshawe for a group of 10 young people, so one of the options for young people completing the training pre-recruitment programme would be a guaranteed interview with us for one of these apprenticeships.

This programme will be delivered through Zoom for now.
