 Amenity Horticulture Apprenticeship

John O’Conners will be running our successful Apprenticeship programme on many of our UK contracts hiring in 2017.   Please check website for full details in April 2017








John O’Conner, in partnership with KEITS Training Services Ltd, are providing a Traineeship programme in January 2016 that will link into our Seasonal and Apprenticeship recruitment.  The Traineeship will be for a minimum of 8 weeks and involve a mixture of ‘on the job’ work experience and supported training  – Health & Safety, First Aid and Manual Handling – as well as work preparation training which will ensure you have the skills and confidence needed to apply for an Apprenticeship or other employment with us. The Traineeship will provide an insight and experience into work in Grounds Maintenance, but could be useful for a stepping stone into any practical profession.

The programme is for those who are motivated to work but lack the skills and experience that employer’s need. You will need to be unemployed, not in training and aged 16 to 23 yrs.

Traineeships are an ‘education and training programme’ and are UNPAID, though we will support you with expenses such as transport and a lunch allowance. You may also be eligible to access other financial support, depending on your circumstances.
