A WESTON business has signed up to a national scheme which gives young people the chance to learn ‘valuable’ marketing skills.

Shipping and storage company Container Team, which is based in Winterstoke Road, has joined the Entrepreneurs’ Circle apprenticeship programme, which was launched by leading apprenticeship provider Skillwise.

The apprenticeship will see a person aged between 16 and 24 learn how to successfully market a business by using social media and writing distribution leaflets and press releases. It is set to begin next month.

The role is set to last for between 12 and 14 months and would see applicants undergo a 10-week traineeship before their new employment begins.

Container Team director Hazel Edwards said: “The scheme has only just started. It is a national programme which is aiming to get 250 people into work.

“We really want to give a valuable opportunity to a young person from Weston.

“They would join a great team of people and would have the option of a career which could be their job for the rest of their life.”
