Engineering company Siemens, water company Wessex Water and housebuilder Redrow have launched recruitment drives for more than 150 new apprentices in total.
Ahead of National Apprenticeship Week (14-18 March), Siemens has created 14 advanced apprenticeships in wind turbine blade manufacture at its rotor blade manufacturing facility in Green Port Hull, Yorkshire. The facility becomes operational in September.
Meanwhile, Redrow is taking on 100 trade apprentices in plastering, painting and decorating, groundworks and customer care, as well as carpentry, plumbing, electrics and bricklaying at its sites across England and Wales.
Wessex Water has announced it is seeking 40 apprentices in engineering, construction, operations, computing, customer service and analytical science roles.
To support their respective recruitment drives, Siemens is turning to its careers site, while Redrow representatives will visit schools and colleges across the UK to talk to young people about the value of trade apprenticeships.
Wessex Water will host an apprenticeship open day on Saturday 12 March between 10am and 1pm at its regional operations centre in Bath.
