West Lothian Council’s Housing, Customer and Building Services department are currently offering challenging yet exciting opportunities for individuals to gain a Modern Apprenticeship.
We are looking to take willing and dedicated individuals (males and females) on a four year long learning journey which will bring together a structured college programme with work based activities.
Modern Apprentices will be expected to achieve SVQ Level 3 in the relevant subjects and should be able to demonstrate the confidence and commitment to meet the challenge of combining “on the job” training with your college studies.
Applicants must have good communication and interpersonal skills, an understanding of customer service, and the ability to work as part of a team.
Successful applicants will have achieved, or be working towards, National 4 or above in English and Maths. You will also have National 4 or above in a practical subject, such as CDT or similar.
The most suitable applicants will be invited to take part in the council’s written assessment. Following this, the top scoring candidates will be invited to attend a practical assessment and a face to face interview.
Testing will take place over April – June
