Hudson Contract will cover the apprentices’ salary for up to a year, starting this autumn.

Firms can be in with a chance of gaining one of the apprentices by going online at hudsoncontract.co.uk/scholarship and describing in up to 100 words how an apprentice would benefit their company.

Ian Anfield, managing director, said: ‘The building trade is one of the biggest apprenticeship employers, and with a serious skills shortage impacting the sector we really wanted to give something back to construction firms. Hopefully it can also provide the perfect platform for two apprentices to kick-start their careers.’
