THE company that distributes power to South Gloucestershire is recruiting new apprentices.
Western Power Distribution said it wanted to take on about 100 technical apprentices in 2016, including for the Bristol area.
Eleanor Sturges, of the company’s employee relations team, said apprenticeships took between two and three years to complete.
Apprentices then progress into a qualified role working on either overhead lines, the underground cable network or in substations maintaining equipment.
Ms Sturges said: “Our apprentices have the opportunity to work towards an industry-specific qualification while gaining hands-on experience at a local depot.”
Applications have to be submitted by the end of January, with information and forms available on the Western Power Distribution website.
