Home Fix Scotland (HFS) is offering prospective apprenticeships in joinery, electrical, plastering, and plumbing.  

Open to those aged 16 and above, the Apprenticeship Foundation programme provides participants with four years of hands-on training to acquire an SCQF Level 6.  

Candidates must have or be expecting to achieve, two National 5’s (or equivalent) in English and a Craft Related Subject such as Craft & Design, Practical Woodworking, Practical Craft Skills, Design & Manufacture or Design & Technology.  

Since it’s inception in 2018, Home Fix Scotland has trained more than 9 apprentices with many still working within the company, putting their skills to excellent use across the region. Just last month, the organisation celebrated Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2022 by interviewing two apprentices who joined the team in 2019. Like Connor, 24, and Kyle, 19, the successful applicants will get the chance to earn, learn and work while gaining the skills they need to kickstart their careers in the building and maintenance sector. 

To apply for these roles please send your cv to recruitment@homefixscotland.co.uk before 12pm on Monday 25th of April 2022. 

Derek Ferguson, Managing Director at Home Fix Scotland said: “Supporting the local workforce is something we’re incredibly passionate about and our apprenticeship programme offers applicants an exciting opportunity to glean valuable, on-site experience from the ground upwards. 

"Our 2022 intake will be able to undertake trade apprentices, ensuring that they can go on to have a fulfilling and lasting career at Home Fix Scotland and across the building and maintenance sector.”
