Liverpool John Moores University has employed ten new apprentices as part of a new drive to get 16-24 year olds into employment. The scheme is partly funded by Liverpool City Council through the Merseyside Apprenticeship Programme.

The apprentices will work for twelve months in the University’s Estate Management department. They will be tasked with roles such as administration, computer aided design and facilities management.

Julie Lloyd, LJMU’s Human Resources Director, said: “This pilot demonstrates LJMU’s commitment to providing young people with a range of opportunities to access education, employment, and training and to tackling youth unemployment. The calibre of the candidates who applied for these apprenticeships was incredibly high. Who knows, some of them could end up studying for relevant degrees at LJMU.”
