Whether you are joining us a bricklayer or an administration apprentice, we want to make sure you have the opportunity to excel in your career with Kier. To support you on your journey, we have introduced a means-tested bursary fund for apprentices. Once you’ve joined the business, you could be eligible for £1000 per year for the duration of your apprenticeship programme to go towards supporting you in the workplace.
The bursary is yours to spend on what you believe will support your career, giving you the financial support needed to help you focus on your employment and studies. Examples of what the bursary can be used for would be; car insurance payments, office clothes, smartphones, laptops and travelcards.
You can apply for the bursary after you’ve been with us for 8 weeks, and we will stay in touch with you throughout your apprenticeship to make sure that you are feeling the benefits of being part of the scheme. As well as to offer any further support that you might need in the workplace.
