Apprentices

Many young people work for us as apprentices.

They go to College one day a week and work for us, earning a wage for the rest of the week.

One of these is Iwan as you can see in the video, he started his career with us as an apprentice and now works for us full time.
Academi Adra can help you with application forms for future apprenticeships.

Look out for any future opportunities we may have.

Worried about being made redundant?

It is likely that many people will be made redundant over the next months because of the pandemic.

If you are worried that you will loose your job, make sure you know your rights about holiday, right to pay and much more.
