Futures are working in partnership with Nottingham City Homes (NCH) in order to help support their recruitment of apprenticeships to help support and develop the excellent service that is offered to their tenants across the city. Attend this Information Session to find out more details.
Through this recruitment drive, NCH will be looking to recruit a total 6 apprentices, 2 of which will be Customer Service roles based in their contact centre , where they will be receiving calls from NCH tenants to support them and their families with any issues that may arise. The remaining 4 roles will be offered as a role of caretaker which will involve the apprentice learning the skills needed to provide the practical support to tenants as well as preparing homes ready for allocation. Through both roles, candidates will be supported to not only become a key part of the NCH team, but will have the chance to develop their skills and learn a trade at the same time.
This pre-employment training will give candidates a chance to upskill themselves and gain a good understanding of the importance of providing excellent customer service by showing them how to both represent themselves and that of NCH to not only tenants, but also any other residents or visitors of Nottingham City as would be expected by the NCH and the City Council.
All candidates who enter onto the programme will be guaranteed an interview for one of the roles available upon satisfactory attendance and commitment to the programme which will consist of a number of qualifications (detailed below), including Customer Service, Employability, Health and Safety*
