Our Apprenticeship Scheme

It has been a long tradition at Elliott's to support the new 'up and coming talent' of tomorrow, whilst also committing to paying our apprentices a competitive rate of pay.  Which currently starts at £5/hr and is increased after 12 months of employment.

We have worked with apprentices for many years, helping them to develop their skills, gain greater understanding of the industry and supporting them in finding the career path that's right for them.

Following the success of our current apprenticeship scheme, we're looking to recruit more to be our stars of the future!

Our apprenticeships cover a whole host of areas from learning what it takes to run a branch yard to how to design a bathroom.  As an Elliott's Apprentice - you will learn by doing and you will be earning at the same time and with all that under your belt, there is every chance for you to embark on a successful career at Elliott's.

The programme covers:-

  • Level 2 Customer Service Practitioner
  • Level 3 Customer Service
  • Level 3 Business Administration

We have also enrolled members of our team on various other apprenticeships, including Trade Business Services Level 2, Accountancy Taxation Professional Level 7 and Software Development Technician Level 3.

So, what do you need to become an Elliott's Apprentice?

First and foremost, you'll need to be friendly with a hands-on approach.  You will also need to be committed to your studies and your role within Elliotts for the duration of your apprenticeship.
