Apprenticeship Opportunities

We understand there are individuals looking to take a step into the scaffolding industry both on site and in the office. These individuals may not have a wealth of experience or hold relevant certificates to take that step however they do have the enthusiasm and drive to want to further their career. 

Experience and skills can be taught, you can’t teach enthusiasm and this is the reason why WellMax are firm believers of their apprenticeship opportunities giving individuals an opportunity to take this step.
