The Apprentice’s Role

This is the perfect opportunity to work within a close-knit and supportive team to develop your skills in administration.

Your duties will be varied and will include training on a range of software programs. The candidate will work closely with the directors, as well as the office staff to ensure the smooth running of operations. The candidate will receive full training, with further opportunities in the future should they wish to progress. The successful candidate will be involved in general office/ business administration, processing email inquiries, quotes and placing orders with suppliers. You will assist with booking in jobs and involved with trade customers.

A NVQ Level 2 in Business Administration would be an advantage for anyone wanting to further their skills to a Level 3.

Wages: £172.00 per week, any overtime above the 40 hours per week, will be paid at the appropriate national minimum wage depending on age.

During our 30 years we have worked with all the major house building companies in addition to small private developments. By having a varied qualified and experienced workforce we are able to offer the right “man for the job”.

LTC has always had the desire to expand, improve and work on the most prestigious projects in our area.

The candidate will receive full training, with further opportunities in the future should they wish to progress.

Skills Required

You must have a strong attention to detail, a good understanding of Microsoft office programs and strong literacy, IT and typing skills. The candidate must be able to prioritise a workload, and manage their time well. You will be reliable and hardworking.

Personal Qualities

You will be able to work well within a team as well as working independently. You must be reliable and motivated and have good time management skills. Excellent communication skills are essential for this job role.

Prior Qualifications

A NVQ Level 2 in Business Administration would be an advantage but not essential, for anyone wanting to further their skills to a Level 3.

This Apprenticeship includes:

  • Level 3 Business Administration
  • Maths and English Functional Skills

As part of the apprenticeship programme, attendance is required at our Skills Group training centre. This is usually twice monthly. All other aspects of the qualification will be delivered on-site by the employer. You will have regular visits from your designated Skills Group assessor, who will monitor your progress during your apprenticeship training.

Whilst at the Skills Group training centre, you will learn the necessary skills and gain experience to help you throughout your role. Part of your training will be knowledge and theory based, with support sessions to help you with your project.

I just wanted to say the biggest thank you to Vanessa, my trainer. You have made my journey so much easier, I don’t know what I would have done without you. You have been amazing and helped me to achieve my qualification. You’ve guided me through every step of the way, I really appreciate it, Vanessa, you have been my rock.

Katie Shorland, Level 2 Hairdressing

I always struggled in school as I wasn’t very academic, so knew learning on the job would be a better option for me. I would find it difficult to get up for 9am but now I wake up and look forward to my day. I wanted to try a hair apprenticeship as I’ve always been interested in hairdressing, and by the end of the first week, I already loved it!

Jaimee Benson, Level 2 Hairdressing

I have developed a range of new skills through work including the technical, industry skills required for the job, to personal development such as ensuring I am always on time. The biggest change since leaving school is adjusting to the independence you gain from earning a salary. My advice to anyone thinking of doing an apprenticeship would be find what you like doing, and go for it!

Will Birch, Level 2 Bricklaying

Since starting the apprenticeship, I’ve become far more confident. In a classroom, you only interact with your classmates, but through working you develop your people skills as you interact with customers on a daily basis. At school, you are closely monitored and parented, however I am now more independent and feel grown up

Sam Collard, Level 2 Light Vehicle and Maintenance Repair

The most important thing I’ve learnt since leaving school is that there are other routes to success than just academia. I failed my GCSEs, as I never suited the school environment. Now though, I’m really enjoying my apprenticeship as I’ve discovered I learn more through hands-on practice.

Ben Freeman, Level 2 Carpentry

I would just like to thank you and your team for all the amazing work they do, you have provided me with the most invaluable experience which has helped to pave the way of my future. The work you do for young people is incredible!

Luke Kowalski, Teaching Assistant and former apprentice at Sir Robert Gefferys School
