THE region’s largest business membership organisation this week launched a new website to help young people find jobs.
The North East Chamber of Commerce’s new online application process makes it simpler for youngsters to apply for vacancies in a range of business disciplines such as business administration, accountancy, engineering and dental nursing.
NECC currently supports around 1,000 youngsters a year through the apprenticeship programme and was a major driving force behind the successful regional apprenticeship recruitment campaign, 100 Days: The Apprenticeship Challenge which recently concluded, helping to recruit over 2,500 apprentices across the region.
NECC chief executive James Ramsbotham said: “Many youngsters are considering apprenticeships to be a favourable method for gaining further qualifications and skills and, in an effort to support those youngsters who have received their A-level results, NECC has launched a new apprenticeships website.
“The new site will provide them with the most up to date information on the courses available and an easy means of applying. I would encourage anyone interested in finding out about apprenticeships as a career path to log on to the website to find out more information.”
