Four new apprentices have been inducted after a recruitment day by the council’s repairs, maintenance and investment service partner, Osborne.
The event was held at the beginning of September and more than 20 young people attended. The four successful candidates were all attendees who were interviewed. They are now employed as apprentices and enrolled at Langley College.
Two of the apprentices will now go into business administration, while another will be working with the electricians in domestic properties and the fourth will work with the plumbers.
The four will join the six apprentices already on the books with Osborne as part of our partnership vision to support local employment.
The recruitment process also highlighted several other candidates who will be given training and support for the next wave of apprentice opportunities.
Michelle Davies, Osborne Account Director, said: “Osborne is providing a brilliant opportunity for Slough’s young people to get trained up in business support and trades which are needed in the borough.
“The young people attend college one day a week to complete their apprenticeships and we are committed to giving them experience throughout all elements of the business.”
Cllr Mohamed Nazir, cabinet member for housing and community safety, said: “What a great opportunity for Slough’s young people to live, work and learn in Slough.
“Osborne is providing a platform for young people to start their careers in a company where they can experience a lot and stand them in good stead to further their careers in either Osborne or in the wider work community.”
