School leaver employment opportunities

July 20, 2020

While health implications are undoubtedly the biggest importance of the Covid-19 pandemic that is being experienced Worldwide, the negative impact for other areas of the economic landscape will gradually unravel too.

One such issue will be the effect on future careers and employment. We have become used to virtually full employment, particularly in this region, but this looks set to change. While support schemes have been implemented to reduce the immediate impact of temporary or permanent business closures, the furlough system is not indefinite and it’s widely recognised that come 1 August 2020 when we enter the next phase of the programme, many sectors not just the much talked about retail and hospitality professions are likely to face difficult times.

One industry hoping to buck-the-trend and could offer employment solutions to those effected and those seeking a long term stable career, is construction. Backed by a £5billion investment from the UK Government, this could be just the ticket for those unemployed, school leavers or education graduates seeking work.

Subsequently, the Mick George Group, a local firm who’s currently engaged in many high-profile infrastructure projects to rebuild Britain in the aftermath of Coronavirus, has made available ‘entry-level jobs’ specifically targeting school or college leavers.

Already employing over 1,000 staff from the local area, this successful construction brand is now recruiting numerous Trainee Machine Operators to work across sites and projects throughout Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Norfolk, Leicestershire and Peterborough.

This exciting opportunity could realise many childhood dreams, permitting Millennials to earn while getting their hands on an impressive fleet of machinery, ranging from excavators, bulldozers, dumper trucks and loading shovels.

The ‘Trainee Machine Operator’ positions could be ideal for school or college leavers, looking for an entry-level job into the construction industry.
