Build Ordsall - Meet the Employer
If you are aged 16-24, Traineeships are a great way to get the skills and experience required to prepare you for an Apprenticeship or work.
Recently we had a open event for students at a ‘Meet the Employer’ event in Ordsall, Salford. The students wanted to gain experience and knowledge in order to become future apprentices. The event had a range of sponsors including Benchmark Building Supplies Ltd, Ox Tools, Premier Mortars and Ken Taylor.
We are looking to help get as many skilled young people into the following apprenticeships: Apprentice Bricklayer, Apprentice Joiner, Apprentice Plumber, Apprentice Electrician, Apprentice Decorator, and many more
