EALING Council leader Julian Bell has called on local businesses to take on a young apprentice.
Firms are being reminded of the benefits of hiring an apprentice as the government will cover the cost of any formal training required.
The council is continuing its drive to match young people with an opportunity to work for a local business.
Council leader, Councillor Julian Bell, said: “It doesn’t matter how big or small your business we have officers who can help you work out the logistics of hiring a young person, develop a job description
and support you throughout the process.
Some small and medium sized businesses may also be eligible to apply for up to £1,500 towards the cost of employing an apprentice.
