Vacancies for Students
A viable option for many students who want to start their career directly after A Levels and still have the option of going to University later on should they choose to do so.
Many careers are open to A Level students especially in the areas of Business, Finance, Retail, Construction, Engineering, Health Care, Hospitality and so forth. Many are at Trainee Manager or Technical level and may include the opportunity to gain relevant qualifications.
Before applying for vacancies please ensure you research the company on its website – this is crucial should you be called for interview as it shows that you are interested in them. A useful website which shows current vacancies for graduates/students/jobseekers is UCAS jobs.
