M & E Flexible Apprentices

In recent years we have experienced a significant decline in apprenticeship intake by contractors, due to the unreliability of workload and therefore reluctance to commit to long term training.

Pier Consulting in partnership with BEST Apprenticeships have developed a programme to assist the growth of apprenticeship intake within the Building Service Industry. By offering a flexible apprenticeship scheme, we enable our clients to increase their labour force, without the long-term training commitment.

We provide or clients and Mechanical and Electrical contractors with apprentices on the same basis as any other temporary labour. Through the hourly rates we charge for the supply of an apprentice, we take care of all their costs and paper work including:

  • College attendance payments
  • Tuition fees
  • PPE costs
  • Tool costs
  • Site assessment costs
  • Holiday pay

Pier Consulting can provide in conjunction with BEST Apprentices, Mechanical and Electrical Apprentices on a temporary basis, on the understanding that the apprentice will be employed by the client until completion of their four year apprenticeship. However should a client no longer require the apprentice within this period, we only require a 4 week notice period, to enable us to relocate the apprentices to another contractor, thus also creating a broader apprenticeship experience.

The scheme offers excellent opportunity to the young unemployed and to apprentices that are awaiting a contractor who may be reluctant to commit to 4 years, helping to invest in not only theirs but also the industries future.
