What we’re thinking…
Stirling and Son is inviting applications for two apprenticeships to start in September, one on boatbuilding and one on painting and varnishing.
The apprenticeships will be for four years, working in the yard four days per week and at college one day per week.
Anyone interested should send a CV and covering letter to email@example.com before the closing date of 6 May.
I gather they're about to start work on a big new project and would also be glad to hear from someone experienced. For more information see the website: Stirling and Son.
