A new vacancy has arisen for a groom to undertake their level 2 Groom Apprenticeship supported by Educ8 Training based on a busy show jumping yard with absolutely amazing facilities including indoor school, indoor stables, outdoor arena, show jumps and arena eventing fences plus a XC course. This employer is an international show jumper who is highly respected and successful at training and producing young riders (both show jumping and eventing) and top class show jumping horses.
This is a non-riding apprenticeship so the daily routine will be all about the horse care and yard duties but there is also lots of opportunity for a talented and enthusiastic show jumping or eventing rider (subject to ability) to ride and receive free training outside of working hours. (sorry no space for your own horse)
If applying for live in you must be aged 18 due to the location of the staff accommodation. If live out must have own transport or 100% reliable lifts.
5 days per week with 2 consecutive days off and (again, outside the remit of the job and the apprenticeship) there may be the opportunity to compete on the show jumping circuit if you are a promising rider.
GCSE maths and English at A – C/9-4 (strong candidates with slightly lower grades would be considered so long as they are committed to working towards Level 2 Functional Skills as part of this apprenticeship.
lovely self contained accommodation
£3.70 per hour, 30 hours per week, to include at least 6 hours per week of paid off the job training
