THT Academy

launches with seven new apprenticeship vacancies

by | 20/08/20

Today we are delighted to announce the launch of the Trafford Housing Trust Academy, with the introduction of seven new apprenticeship vacancies.  

The Academy will provide opportunities for new colleagues to maximise their potential through apprenticeships, a graduate programme, and vocational training at THT. The recruitment of seven apprentices is just the beginning.  

The apprenticeship vacancies we are announcing today will enable seven individuals to learn whilst working, through a structured and tailored apprenticeship programme.  

New challenge, new career, new life… 

It’s a common misconception that apprenticeships are only for those who are entering the world of work from school or college. Apprenticeships are available to anyone at any age. Starting your career, reinventing yourself, or developing current skills … an apprenticeship will you help you develop confidence in the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed for you to succeed 

We want to create an inclusive environment where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential. We celebrate our differences and recognise the importance of our teams reflecting the communities we serve, so our opportunities are open to our colleagues, our customers and people in our communities. 

All career paths are different, and each one of us has different skill sets and ways of learning. With an apprenticeship from THT, you will get real-life work experience, whilst gaining a qualification in the career of your choosing.  

As a THT apprentice we will: 

  • Pay you at the Living Wage Foundation rate (at THT - £9.32/hour), NOT the standard apprentice rates. 
  • Provide you with the same competitive benefits as all the other colleagues 
  • Pay you for your study time within your regular working hours (maximum 36.25 hours per week). 
  • Support you in the workplace by providing you with a mentor and a specialist learning and development professional from your training provider.  

We want to hear from you if you: 

  • Are committed to your learning and strive to develop your skills to be the best that you can be. 
  • Are curious and actively seek opportunities to learn from others. 
  • Are passionate about your career and proud of what you do. 
  • Strive to make a difference, with a focus on our customers and communities, and a passion for social justice.
