    Red face Trainee and Improver Oppertunities (Lack of them)



    Hi,

    New to this site thought I'd give this a try I have over 7 years of facilities and general maintenance experience but I am currently 6 weeks from being fully qualified from The college of North West London in Refrigeration& Air conditioning Level 2 (hopefully going onto Level 3 in September) and currently looking for work experience as a trainee or improver.

    I have a full clean driving licence and prepared to travel I currently live in Richmond Surrey. But am finding it really difficult to get anything.

    I have emailed over 40 companies and plastered my CV everywhere.

    Can anyone recommend anything. Or is there anything I should be doing that I am not at present.

    I am currently working as a facilities Assistant, but need to get into my field now. I am ready.

    Thanks in Advance

    I Robinson

    If I got one hundred percent cost from the government I would take on somebody in the days that they were not attending college to show them the hands on,not sure if it's available if not it should be.

    .

    The next thing you do is visit the companies you
    have contacted. You are going to have to make
    a nuisance of yourself and speak to them personally.

    Let them see you and speak to you.

    See enough people and someone will hopefully
    offer you something, if only to shut you up.

    Keep at it, don't lose heart, you are working and
    jobs come from jobs.

    Regards

    Rob
