Future Prospects? - Is this post likely to become a full time one for the right applicant after completing their application? What additional training are you able to offer on the job?

If a position becomes vacant within the business that is suitable for the applicant they can apply for a permanent post. Full training for this role will be provided

Reality Check - Does the job have long periods on your feet? Are you rural with poor access to public transport? Will some weekend work be expected? Have a think about what some candidates might find as a barrier.

Job is seated at a desk for majority of the day. No long period on feet. We are based at Rotherwas so consideration needs to be taken on how the apprentice would get to work if they do not drive. They would need to look into bus timetables and or walking times before applying.
