The Vintage Charm Company seek Apprentice!

Want to earn up to £100 per week, whilst gaining a valuable qualification and work experience? Then this role could be for you!

WHAT ARE APPRENTICESHIPS?

As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Apprentices receive training to work towards nationally recognised qualifications such as an NVQ. Anyone living in England, over 16 years-old and not in full-time education can apply.

Apprenticeships normally take around 6-12 months to complete depending on the level of Apprenticeship, the apprentices’ ability and the industry sector. Pay is usually £90-100 per week and no tax and national insurance is payable as this falls below the lower earnings limit for contributions.

There are lots of benefits to doing an Apprenticeship. You can earn while you learn, and learn in a way that is best suited to you – through hands-on experience on the job. Key benefits of being an apprentice include;

  • earning a salary
  • getting paid holidays
  • receiving training
  • gaining qualifications
  • learning job-specific skills
