Travel to and from site could range from 1-1.5 hours each way depending on where our projects are.

We regularly rotate our team to ensure that travel times are shared equally.

We also promote a car share system to help those to and from site that may not drive or want to share driving.

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

20 days plus bank holidays paid per year – holiday calendar runs Jan to Dec with a 2 week shutdown over the Christmas Break for which 5 days annual holiday should be held back for.

Skills Required

  • Good communication and team working skills
  • Able to demonstrate a strong work ethic
  • Time management
  • Attention to detail
  • Excellent presentation
  • Site experience would be advantageous
  • CSCS Certificate – Pass
  • Driving licence would be preferable

Proof of any previous part/full time work history (not necessarily site related) on applicants’ CVs would be seen as a positive!

Qualities Required

  • The ideal candidate would be a proactive individual who can work well both within a team while using their initiative and is driven to want to learn and develop within the electrical sector
  • They must be a dedicated and dependable individual who is always able to complete tasks both onsite and during college to the best of their ability

Qualifications Required

GCSE (or equivalent) minimum A*-C or 9-4 in maths, English and Science.

Level 2 electrical qualification – desirable but not essential.

A’ Level entrants would be considered for this apprenticeship and can apply for a level 3 apprenticeship without having completed the level 2 NVQ or having had any previous site experience.

Applicants that have completed a 1-year, full-time level 3 qualification in electrical installations may be considered, although will still be required to complete the full 4-year apprenticeship programme if successful.

Must have passed the Operative CSCS test (50 multiple choice questions) to be booked for a 1st stage interview, a provisional red card should not be applied for until a work trial has been confirmed (as the card is only valid for 6 months and is only issued once by the CITB). Once a successful interview has been completed via Zoom, we would advise the candidate how to apply for their card. 

The pass certificate is valid for 2 years, so at any point during the 2 years, the card can be applied for, so, should the candidate not successfully pass a first stage interview with our Company, the candidate can still apply for positions elsewhere stating they have passed the CSCS test on their CV and therefore have not lessened their chances of gaining an apprenticeship, in fact they have improved them!

Following a successful trial, the Company shall book and pay for the candidate to take an ECS test to gain their ECS apprenticeship card which can only be applied for in the September once the learner, college and Company have all signed the college issued commitment statement/ learning agreement.

The above health and safety cards are a mandatory requirement for all electrical workers based on commercial sites within the UK.

Training Provided

Training Provider to be confirmed.

Advanced Installation Electrician and Maintenance Electrician Standard.

The apprentice would be working towards the City and Guilds Level 3 Electrotechnical Qualification.

College studies include day release one day per week during term time for the first 3 years of the apprenticeship. The final year is spent completing the NVQ portfolio.

The 4-year course will enable you to build a solid NVQ portfolio, contributing greatly to the completion of your qualification.

Ultimately, as a Company, we strive for 100% pass rate and ensure that all our trainees gain their JIB ECS Gold Card.

We also will offer future development opportunities following the apprenticeship should the learner demonstrates an aptitude for a particular area, e.g. supervisory/team leadership.
