Congratulations on reaching the special page dedicated to our project to find apprentices across the UK.
Our current Chief Executive, Jeff Fairburn (pictured right) who is still only 47 years old, started in just this way at 17, so who knows, perhaps you’ll be our future Chief Executive?
The link at the bottom of this page takes you to our special Persimmon Jobs website where you can apply directly for one of our apprenticeships.
Before you do so, here’s some information that may help you.
Catherine Burton is head of business studies and vocational education at a leading Midlands school. Here’s her handy guide.
An apprenticeship will give you the opportunity to gain a wide range of different experiences. As an apprentice you will be trained by experienced staff whilst earning a wage. The majority of your time will be learning skills on the job; however, you will also work towards recognised national qualifications on day release at college.
You will follow a structured training programme and will receive extensive support from Persimmon throughout the apprenticeship to ensure your skills develop to the highest standard.
How do I know if I have the right skills and qualifications to apply?
If you're leaving school with GCSEs you can apply for a Persimmon apprenticeship. You will need to check the entry requirement to make sure you have the right qualifications. Alongside this you will need to show you're committed and keen to learn. Persimmon will want to see you're reliable, motivated and enthusiastic so make sure you demonstrate these attributes in your interview and application.
How do I apply?
Our dedicated jobs website www.persimmonjobs.com has all the information you will need. If your application is successful you will be invited to an interview where you will have the opportunity to discuss the apprenticeship further, but most importantly sell yourself! Check out the dos and don’ts below to help you with your application:
