Construction firm Southdale is aiming to recruit 40 apprentices by the end of March – including in Yorkshire and Humber.

The positions are being created across the North of England in a variety of on-site trades and office-based positions to support projects on behalf of a number of clients.

Apprentices are required specifically in Hull, York, Barnsley, Halifax, Batley, Middlesbrough, Wigan, Blackpool, Toxteth, Leek, Ellesmere Port and Widnes.

Southdale, who have an office in Halifax, is aiming to fill a minimum of 50 apprenticeship positions in 2015, double the number created in 2014.

The company is open to flexible apprenticeship options, such as giving part-time work to students on full-time college courses, opening the opportunities up to a wider group of potential candidates.

Claire Preston, Learning and Development Manager at Southdale, said: “Our workload across the North of England means we have a fantastic opportunity to create apprenticeships for at least 50 young people in 2015.

“We are keen to give opportunities for people to learn their practical skills, alongside the theoretical studies conducted with learning providers, so those who are already enrolled with colleges can also apply.

“One of the most important responsibilities within our industry is to develop young talent for the future, and we want to be able to do that by creating opportunities for people in the areas in which they live. We would encourage any young people interested in a trade or office-based apprenticeship to get in touch and find out more.”
