As a part of our #InspiringFutureApprentices we are exploring ‘hidden jobs’ in areas that you may not have considered and we have some great real life examples through some of our current apprentices.
Some qualifications can have an old-fashioned reputation that may put you off pursuing a role within the sector and we are here to break the mould and put the excitement into something that you may have considered ‘boring’ or not considered at all.
This week we are looking at Engineering
Jobs within Engineering are never ending and some of our Apprentices are lucky enough to have some really cool and exciting roles within the Engineering sector.
