A leading Lowestoft employer has partnered up with a college to offer almost a dozen new apprenticeship opportunities.

Self-catering holiday business Hoseasons has teamed up with East Coast College to recruit and train up to 10 new apprentices within digital marketing and customer service roles.

The company is working alongside the college to offer 12-18 month programmes for youngsters to learn the necessary skills to join its marketing and sales teams.

Matt Smith from Hoseasons, said: 'We're looking for aspiring individuals who have a passion for everything digital.

'By training on the job and being supported by experienced tutors, the programmes really get youngsters ready for working life.'

Stuart Rimmer, Principal of East Coast College, added: 'Apprenticeships have come a long way, enabling career progression and the attainment of higher education qualifications without incurring large student debts.

'What's more, many apprenticeships lead to permanent paid positions.'
