Working hours will vary depending on the contract, but you may also benefit from overtime and travelling expenses should you have to travel more than 30 miles to a role.
The initial training will be funded by yourself and can cost from as little as £59 per month on an interest free finance package.

Here, you will be assessed on both a practical and professional level to ensure you meet the demands and requirements of the number of contracts currently available. At present 96% of our applicants who attended the practical and professional assessment have been offered a position through the contracting company.
During your weeks practical and professional assessment you will receive training which will be far more specific to the actual contracts you will work on.
