  2. UCB will work with you to promote your apprenticeship vacancy
  3. Potential candidates will be contacted and, where suitable, interview preparation offered by specialist UCB teams - applicant details will be forwarded to you for consideration

  • the qualifications or standards they are working towards
  • signatures of all parties including parents/guardians of under 18-year-olds
