Our Apprenticeship Pathways

We employ apprentices from a wide variety of backgrounds and welcome people looking to make a career change. To be selected you should have excellent communication and organisational skills, and the capability to use your own initiative. You will be expected to work efficiently within a fast-paced environment and be eager to learn new skills. We offer apprenticeships across: care work, recruitment, central support, HR, IT, and marketing.

“I had some worry and self-doubt that I couldn't succeed in a new career after doing the same thing for so long, but it was definitely the right decision. I feel extremely supported. You always have a base skill set developed from previous roles. You can harness these to achieve so much more, and the apprenticeship at Newcross helps you on your journey."

- Nadine Le Good, Relationship Executive, working towards the Recruitment Consultant Level 3 qualification
