Five apprentices at the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) have been offered permanent positions.
They are based at ONR’s head office in Bootle and work in administration posts across the organisation.
Their apprenticeships were due to run until summer 2015. But the five impressed so much that they were offered full time jobs after just four months.
Dave Caton, ONR HR Director, said: “All the apprentices have been absolutely fantastic and rose to the challenge.”
This week is National Apprenticeship Week (March 9-13) which is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service. It is designed to celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.
Two of ONR’s successful apprentices reflected on their achievements:
Adam said: “I am delighted that we have all been offered full time positions following a successful apprenticeship scheme. It has been a pleasure to work here while having the opportunity to develop my key skills further in business and administration. A full time job is the ultimate reward for the work that we have all put in since joining ONR.”
Becky added: “It is a fantastic feeling to know I have ‘job security’ after initially being an apprentice.”
ONR has just welcomed four new apprentices at its sites in Bootle and Cheltenham.
