Kicking off your career with an Orian apprenticeship is a great way to get a head start in the field you want to work in.
You’ll get first-hand knowledge of how the facilities management industry works, and other advantages will include:
Learn while you earn
Apprenticeships enable you to start working and earn a decent wage while you learn key skills and gain the qualifications that future employers want. You’ll probably start out on the National Minimum Wage or another standard rate of pay for apprenticeships in your industry. But, as your skills progress, your employer may up your paycheque as well. This not only helps out your bank account, but gives you an extra incentive to do well in your apprenticeship.
While on your apprenticeship, you’ll be treated like a regular employee and you’ll get a certain amount of paid holiday per year in addition to bank holidays.
One of the largest advantages of getting the qualifications you need in your field, while being able to put the skills you learn into practise at the same time, is that someone will always be on-hand to show you how things are done. If you have any questions about techniques, terminology or anything related to the industry, you can instantly ask your manager. Asking questions, taking on more responsibility and trying new things will help you get better in your apprenticeship
Good career prospects
Your apprenticeship will be very rewarding, even if at times it may seem demanding. Once you have finished your apprenticeship, you’ll have a world of options open to you. Having industry experience is very important when getting your first job, so being able to show that you’ve got that plus qualifications will give you a huge advantage over other applicants.
