Last chance to enter Next Steps apprenticeship competition
If you are looking for a job in the construction industry then enter Next Steps now.
The deadline for this year’s competition is Friday, June 10 and there are four apprenticeships up for grabs from TRJ Ltd and Lloyd and Gravell Ltd.
It is open to anyone aged 16 and over living in Carmarthenshire, and no previous experience is needed.
Those shortlisted will be invited for interview, and the successful candidates will then spend five weeks on-site with skilled tradesmen during July and August to learn skills including carpentry, bricklaying, plastering and ground works.
The winners will be announced at a prestigious ceremony on August 12 and then they will have a few weeks off before starting their apprenticeships in September.
Any runners-up that really impress during the process may also be given further opportunities by other local contracting companies.
Director of Lloyd and Gravell Ltd Kevin Gravell said: “This is the seventh year we have run this competition and it gives local people a chance to compete for a job in a difficult employment market."
Director of TRJ Ltd Owain Jones said: “We are really excited about this year’s competition and are looking forward to putting the candidates through their paces."
Next Steps is a joint initiative between the two local building firms and Constructing Carmarthenshire Together - a partnership between Carmarthenshire County Council’s Property division, Coleg Sir Gâr, and Carmarthenshire Construction Training Association Ltd.
