London Plus offers opportunity for apprentices
19 Feb 16
London Plus Credit Union is offering another opportunity for a young person to join their team as an apprentice.
Fulham-based London Plus has developed a reputation as a flagship credit union when it comes to offering young people the opportunity to grow a career in the credit union sector.
In its relatively short seven-year existence, London Plus has taken on an impressive eight apprentices. The credit union has provided these young people with invaluable experience and helped them to earn NVQs (National Vocational Qualifications) in Business and Administration. Six of them were offered permanent positions within London Plus, and have gone on to become the backbone of a strong and growing business.
London Plus Chair Vincent Thomas said: “As a forward-looking community organisation, giving people opportunities to develop themselves is an important part of what we’re about.
“The young people we’ve given placements to have developed new skills, knowledge and confidence, while we have benefited from their talent, energy and commitment. It's a real success story”.
London Plus is now looking for another young, passionate individual who wants to carve out a financial services career. This short video shows just how apprentices develop as part of this supportive, vibrant team.
London Plus Chief Executive Cheryl Gale said: “I take great pride in seeing how each individual apprentice has grown with us. It’s been a joy to watch them make a great personal journey while helping us build a strong team that complements our business objectives and helps us meet our members’ expectations”.
London Plus was founded in 2008 and serves anyone who lives or works in the London boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, Wandsworth, Hounslow and City of Westminster, as well as a number of housing associations, churches and trade union members.
Any young person interested in applying for this apprenticeship should contact Cheryl.
