The programme, which begins in January 2020, consists of a two-year training scheme where individuals will gain industry recognised qualifications, including a Level 2 Award in Pest Management.

In addition, learning will include workplace skills, health and safety, food safety, customer service, legislation and how technology plays a part in the industry.

Jon Blake MD of Abate Pest Management said, “We are very excited to launch this new scheme. 

"Hopefully this will be a big opportunity for a couple of individuals to earn and learn, in an industry which is often seen as someone that just deals with rats and mice, which is so far from the truth.”

There are no restrictions regarding an applicant's age - the scheme is open to everyone. 

Interested candidates can apply by sending their CV to Jill Blake at info@abateltd.co.uk

Closing date is midday on 20 December 2019.
