Are you keen to learn a specific skill, in a particular area, whilst working for one of the country's largest housing associations? Then look no further - you have come to the right place.

Orbit is a leading housing provider, with a 50-year heritage, providing homes and services to more than 100,000 people across the UK. We reinvest our profits into building more homes and we are committed to our mission of building communities, by providing high-quality homes in places where our customers are proud to live.

Throughout 2018, Orbit is currently looking to employ exceptional individuals in a wide range of Apprenticeships. Our Apprenticeship Programme will provide you with the opportunity to gain the skills, experience and qualifications you need to secure the job you want, whilst getting paid in full time employment. Here at Orbit we select the most appropriate qualifications for you to study towards and we give you the support you need.

Based within our Community Investment Team, we are currently looking for a Business Administration Apprentice. As an Apprentice based in this Directorate, you will report into the Placemaking & Partnerships Manager and provide administrative support to the Team whilst undertaking a structured training and development programme. There is no such thing as a typical day in community investment. A day can involve hosting an extreme sports customer engagement event to participating in a bid at the London Mayors office for funding application. The benefits of working within this team are that you will experience Orbit from many perspectives gaining insights into many careers. This gives the successful candidate a chance to gain valuable skills that are transferable across multiple sectors. Notwithstanding that community investment spends every day trying to make the lives of Orbit customers and communities better. Very few roles will give you a sense of job satisfaction that this role will.

Your Apprenticeship will last for a duration of two years. During which time you will gain a Business Administration Intermediate Level 2 Apprenticeship, and upon completion, also be able to move onto an Advanced Level 3 Apprenticeship in Business Administration. Orbit cannot guarantee that after the two years you will be offered a permanent role within the organisation, however, the experience and qualifications that you will have gained throughout your time with us will certainly equip you for success in securing a permanent role in your career.

Entry Requirements for our Apprenticeships are as follows:
*Our Apprenticeships are open to anyone over the age of 16.

*For an Intermediate Apprenticeship you will need 5 GCSE at grades(A*-C/9-4) or equivalent including Mathematics and English.

*Orbit is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all members of the community.

We look forward to hearing from you!
