If you need a hand and want to give someone an opportunity to prove themselves you’ve arrived at the right place. You can search below for electrical apprentices who are looking to find work in your area.

With jobs in short supply these are difficult times for trainee electricians who need to gain work experience.

Many are attending college and will already have a good knowledge of the health and safety and regs side of electrical work, but they need a job to complete their practical training and qualifications.

Don’t be put off from making contact even if the comment was placed a while ago. There could be a keen trainee still waiting and desperate to work.

Good Luck and please let me know how you get on.  Steve.

Electrical Courses

Many of the electrical installation courses for electrical apprentices are fully funded by the government and are free of charge for students aged 16 to 18.   However a contribution to the cost of the course is required from the employer for trainees aged 19 to 24.  Courses may be block or day release and the Level 3 qualification will require trainees to be working  in a permanently employed position.  To find out more about NVQ, BTEC and City & Guilds electrical training you can read the article about electrical engineering and apprenticeship courses.

I am a hardworking, organised and responsible individual who enjoys working as part of team. I am willing to challenge myself in new situations, as I look to gain experience within the electrical industry.
