GCH welcomes three trainees

Gloucester City Homes (GCH) has taken on three local young people as trainees.

The new trainees started earlier this month - Sam as business administration apprentice, Maddie as office administrator and Bekah as property services assistant.

All three roles have been designed to provide a wide range of experience and will equip the young people with work-based skills and tools to develop their future careers.

Maddie and Bekah were recruited as part of the government's Kickstart Scheme, which aims to provide unemployed young people with valuable work experience through a 25 hours per week six-month placement. Alongside practical experience, they will take part in 12 training sessions with Adult Education and have the support of a dedicated mentor.

Emily Cambridge, head of human resources & inclusion at GCH, said: "We are really pleased to offer opportunities for young people. We understand that it is an important time to support them as we emerge from the pandemic in different and uncertain circumstances.

"GCH has a strong track record of providing experience in a wide range of areas and kickstarting careers and we look forward to supporting Sam, Maddie and Bekah to develop."

Office administrator trainee Maddie said: "I am very grateful for this opportunity and thrilled to be a part of the GCH team. I am excited to see what the future holds."

Business administration apprentice Sam said: "I am looking forward to working at GCH to develop my skills and gain professional experience with a company whose roots are in the community."

GCH will offer three more placements under the Kickstart Scheme in October. Applicants must be aged 16-24, claiming Universal Credit and referred by their job coach. Please follow Gloucester City Homes on Facebook or Twitter for updates.
