On Site was set up in 1996 to help local people to get jobs and training in construction. With so much re-development of the city going on, Bristol City Council and others wanted to make sure that as many local people as possible could get the jobs on offer.
Employers who are looking to take on an apprentice now is the time to get in contact with us so we can support your organisation in taking on apprentices in the construction trade.
We have a very high success rate and are now looking for more employers to work with us.
On Site Bristol is part of Bristol City Council but acts as a broker for students and employers to successfully complete an apprenticeship. All applicants are considered for positions within the Council trade teams as well as other opportunities with employers working in the local area.
On Site process acts as a ‘one-stop shop’; we take care of training, funding and general support. Our success rate is 94% and is considerably higher than our local competitors.
From the point of view of a school leaver, apprenticeships do have some advantages compared with the other options available.
For example, one thing that often holds back new university graduates is not having the level of work experience required to work in their chosen field – this is something that usually has to be worked for in their own time.
With an apprenticeship, though, you’re actually doing the job while you qualify.
Although employers aren’t obliged to keep you on after your apprenticeship, you will have a good amount of experience working in the role.
