Apprenticeships up for grabs
3:25pm Friday 21st February 2014 in News
CURRENT pupils or school leavers have been urged to join an apprentice scheme for Severn Trent Water.
Anyone with at least five GCSEs (or equivalent) at grades A* - C , including Maths and English, or who is expecting to achieve those grades this year, can apply.
There are 16 places for either a two-year operational technician apprenticeship or a four-year advanced apprenticeship in electrical, maintenance or instrumentation skills.
Kayleigh Bessim is an apprentice operations and maintenance technician for Severn Trent Water .
She said: “I was working in a pub and saw an advert on the apprenticeship website and applied for a role in engineering.
"I was told about another role in operations and maintenance that sounded really interesting – so applied for that one as well.
"There was lots of outdoor work and it's very hands on, which I like."
More information is available at severntrent.com/apprentices. The closing date is in early March and places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
