Training and work experience
We offer a number of volunteering opportunities, work placements and apprenticeships not only within Link, but with some of our contractors.
Our subsidiaries, LinkLiving and Horizon, offer volunteering opportunities which give participants the chance to learn or refresh skills while building confidence and self-esteem through helping others.
- Work placements
We work in partnership with a number of schools, colleges and training providers to offer work placements to pupils and students.
We also ask the contractors we employ to provide work placement opportunities to young people to help them gain experience in the construction industry.
We offer modern apprenticeships in business administration, housing, construction, social care and within our in-house trades team, Link Property.
The apprenticeships give young people the opportunity to begin their careers with Link and the chance to progress within the organisation.
Some of our contractors also offer apprenticeships as part of community benefits in procurement.
