AN APPRENTICE has been given a head start at a company following a push to help young people find work.
Rachael Smith has landed the new role at Omega Therapies on Hewell Road, which will eventually give her the practical experience for a qualification in business and administration.
The 17-year-old, who will go to college once a week, will work within the company assisting with promotion, administration and the general running of the business.
It follows a move by Redditch Borough Council which called on businesses to create apprentice positions in a bid to get people in to work.
Joe Baker, lead therapist at Omega Therapies, said: “I’m a firm believer in young people and believe they should be given the opportunity to receive practical training and experience which in turn should get them a job in the future.”
