What is a traineeship?

A traineeship through Ongo is a 10-12 week work placement with a local organisation, working 16 hours a week within the business and then receiving 5 hours per week training time.

By completing a traineeship, you will gain work experience, skills and knowledge in a particular sector, as well as receiving training. 

Your training will include CV writing, interview prep and employability skills to help you with getting a job afterwards. You will also benefit from learning on the job skills and functional skills as well as making your CV look more attractive to employers by having first-hand experience in a work environment.

Placements will be available in the following areas:

  • Catering & hospitality
  • Maintenance
  • Administration

Is financial support available?

Whilst the traineeship is unpaid, we can provide financial support to you during your traineeship.
