Sharon Howes, Director of People Services at Martlets said:
“We are delighted to be able to offer these new opportunities in our city. We are particularly aware that youth employment has been adversely affected by COVID-19 and we hope that we attract some young talent to work with us in our e-commerce sales team. Our marketing apprenticeship role will be supported by a fantastic team, giving amazing exposure to all areas of our charity work. We continue to help people with terminal illness in the heart of our community. It is wonderful to connect with and support people in our area and that includes providing fulfilling employment opportunities.
We are really looking forward to supporting these roles and in doing so helping develop vital skills and experience and a step up on the career ladder.”
