Jackson Civil Engineering is looking to recruit a group 18-25 year olds to take part in a work experience programme to mark its 60th anniversary.
Trainees will be posted on one of Jackson's sites for six weeks to learn about the civil engineering and construction industries. Mentors will be assigned to the trainees to ensure they get the best experience possible, and they will be given weekly tasks to complete. At the end of the programme, the most promising trainee will be chosen to take on a full time apprenticeship with Jackson.
Chief Executive Richard Neall said: "Jackson is 60 this year and we felt it would be great to give something back to the communities in which we work. Unemployment is at a 17 years high, and people in this age bracket are finding it especially difficult to get into full time employment. We're privileged to be in a position where we can offer a group of young people this unique opportunity to gain valuable work experience, have something tangible to put on their CVs, and maybe get a full time apprenticeship at the end of it."
Jackson has seven regional officers across the country and work experience places are available in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Essex, Hull and Kent.
Interested applicants should send a CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org Closing date is Friday 27 July. Interviews will take place week commencing 6 August.
