A Closer Look at a Business Traineeship

Closer Look Business Traineeship

Business Traineeships are designed for people seeking a career in business and administration across a broad range of industries.

Undertaking training through a business traineeship means the skills and knowledge you develop will be put into practice, and assessed, in a real workplace. The training provides a fantastic opportunity to develop real-world skills in a supported environment.

Why a Business Traineeship

This Traineeship is designed for those entering the workforce to develop skills and knowledge as a foundation for a successful career. Completing a Business Traineeship can open the doors to several different business-related career options.

Typical job roles related to the training may include administrative support, reception and customer service. However, you may be given the opportunity to support specialist areas of the business like Human Resources, Finance or Marketing.

You’ll develop practical, real-world skills in a supported environment that will set you up for a long and successful career.
