Heriot-Watt University are hosting a series of open forums next week (Monday 1 - Friday 5 March) to help employers and prospective Graduate Apprentices learn more about the benefits that a Graduate Apprenticeship can bring.
These events may be of interest to people or businesses based in Orkney, as Heriot-Watt University will be offering their Graduate Apprenticeship programme online this year, meaning people can undertake this qualification while working and living in Orkney.
This week for Jobs of the Week we have a variety of different jobs including an apprenticeship with SSEN and an Apprenticeship at Serco Northlink Ferries. We also have one at EMEC as a Marketing Officer.
This week for Jobs of the Week we have a variety of different jobs from Vaccinators with NHSO and a Clerical Assistant in Eday.
Are you a local employer who would like to learn more about apprenticeships and the benefits they can offer your business?
Developing the Young Workforce are working in partnership with Skills Development Scotland to host a national online event for employers.
This event will provide employers of all sizes with the latest information about apprenticeships, current funding support and practical advice on how to take on an apprentice - whether a new recruit or upskilling an existing employee.
This week for Jobs of the Week we have two fantastic apprenticeship opportunities available with Orkney Builders as an Apprentice Bricklayer and a Apprentice painter with Kenneth C Findlay & Sons and a variety of other jobs in between.
Funding is being made available to local businesses and organisations to support young people into employment.
The Employer Recruitment Incentive (ERI) is managed by Community Learning and Development at Orkney Islands Council, and aims to support those furthest away from employment into positive and fair work.
The incentive is available to businesses and organisations in the private and third sector who have less than 250 employees, to create employment opportunities for individuals who meet the eligibility criteria (see below), with the aim of the participant being offered a sustainable job within the organisation at the end of the scheme.
All jobs must be newly created and last for a minimum of 52 weeks. Apprenticeship opportunities are encouraged.
The scheme will pay for 50% of the individual’s salary costs for 52 weeks.
Community Learning and Development are inviting local employers to apply for this funding. There are a limited number of spaces and they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
If you would like to apply for the Employer Recruitment Incentive, or require further information please contact Lindsey Johnson on firstname.lastname@example.org
