Leading local employers from a wide range of industries gathered at the end of January for a careers event like no other.
Local apprenticeship provider, Themis, who +24 have partnered with on a number of occasions, invited us to their annual careers event. The evening gives the opportunity for potential apprentices and future bosses to meet and interact with local businesses that are enthusiastic about apprenticeships. It is always a successful event, with both apprentices and businesses turning out in large numbers every year.
With a wide range of sectors represented, from construction to engineering, digital agencies to healthcare and many more, the event proves that Burnley is full of brilliant businesses. No matter the career young people may seek, there is a Burnley company waiting to help them reach their goal and guide them in developing their skills.
At the event itself, apprentice hopefuls can access essential career advice, support in regards to CV writing, as well as meeting with Themis staff, who offer guidance on how best to network with the range of businesses in attendance.
As a Burnley Bondholder, +24 is passionate about the local area and seeing it grow. It’s because of this, that we view apprenticeships and the chance to train enthusiastic, local young people that they give Burnley businesses, as an incredible way of improving the town. Apprenticeships keep talented individuals working in Burnley and help local businesses grow, progress and achieve success, which can only be a good thing for the town.
