Loughborough College and Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd have joined forces to offer apprenticeship opportunities to students aged around 16 to 24 years-old.
The Apprenticeship Programme will see seven apprentices recruited initially with the potential for further opportunities in the future. Following the successful completion of the fixed term-period, the apprentices may be offered full-time roles within the business.
The administrative roles will support the pharmaceutical business’ HR, Finance, Quality Assurance and Business Admin teams. The successful candidates will be offered fixed-term contracts initially, where they will have the opportunity to gain an Intermediate Apprenticeship in Business Administration, or an Intermediate Accountancy Apprenticeship qualification if they are appointed to the Accounts Team.
Loughborough College CEO John Doherty said: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of our Apprenticeship Programme with Morningside.
“For anyone looking to kick-start – or even change direction in – their career, it offers an invaluable opportunity to gain excellent work experience with one of Loughborough’s leading companies, while gaining a business or accounts qualification at the same time.”
Dr Nik Kotecha OBE, Chief Executive at Morningside, added: “We’re proud to be an employer where a number of young people have started their careers here and then moved up within our organisation to take on more senior roles.
“We actively invest in our workforce and every apprentice will be given full training and on-the-job coaching to help them develop. The programme has been set up to continue to offer valuable career advancing opportunities to young people over a number of years, so we anticipate it will grow, as our business grows, and we carry on expanding our workforce.”
