All of the businesses who post their apprenticeships vacancies on WANNABE are actively looking for eager young people to fill the roles and therefore you should not feel intimidated at the thought of calling or emailing an employer to enquire about their apprenticeship. Apprenticeships in Aylesbury aren’t the only option, as the whole of Buckinghamshire is a hub for apprenticeships and high level careers.

They understand that this might be your first time applying for a job and don’t expect you to know everything about the process at first. Although it’s always a good idea to be as prepared as possible before picking up the phone or sending an email with your CV to an employer so we recommend reading the job posting properly and doing some research on the business before getting in contact so that the conversation flows well and you can have a good discussion about the role without needing to ask them too many questions that could have been answered if you did some prior research.
