The Barnet Group is looking for talented people to join our growing business.

We have apprenticeship opportunities in Barnet Homes and Your Choice Barnet.

More than 80 people have taken advantage of our Apprenticeships since 2010 and, though it’s not guaranteed, we maintain a high retention rate on completion of the programme.

What is an apprenticeship?

If you love learning, but also want to gain experience in the workplace whilst getting paid, then you should consider an apprenticeship.

An apprenticeship is a full-time work-based learning programme that combines accredited learning with paid work. It gives you the opportunity to study towards a nationally recognised qualification (fully paid for by us), whilst gaining real experience.

By the end of the programme, you will have acquired the skills, knowledge and experiences, as well as a relevant qualification, to perform a skilled role.

80% of your time will be spent working in a real job which gives you the experience you need to excel in your chosen sector.

The other 20% of your time will be spent on off-the-job training which may be delivered in several ways: face to face, online, through projects or through supervision and mentoring.

Can I do an apprenticeship?

The only entry requirements are:

  • you must be over the age of 16
  • not in full-time education or work
  • have GCSE grade 4 or C in English and Maths
  • be eligible to work in the UK
  • not already hold a qualification in housing

We encourage unemployed residents of London Borough of Barnet to apply to our apprenticeship programme, including school leavers, care leavers, people with disabilities
and people who are long term unemployed

What apprenticeship will I achieve?

Our programme is a Chartered Institute of Housing Level 2 Housing and Property Management Apprenticeship. On successful completion, your qualification will be equivalent to a GCSE.

How long will it take?

The full programme will last for 14 months and starts in September 2020

What will I earn?

You will be paid an annual salary of £14,000 and you will also receive a flexible pension and benefit allowance of 5% of your base salary. Flex benefits are hosted by AON and will allow you to choose from a variety of benefits.

What support do I get?
