Hamburg/Berlin, 20 July, 2017 – There has recently been a particular spotlight on apprenticeships owed largely to the promises of the election and the worry of a post-Brexit labour shortage. Education Secretary, Justine Greening urged all employers to offer apprenticeship schemes to push the “skills revolution for Brexit Britain,” with Theresa May pledging to create three million new apprenticeships by 2020. With this in mind, job meta-search engine Joblift has studied the apprenticeship job market and compared the growth in vacancies with that of internships, observing a North/South divide in postings and found that 13 times more apprenticeship were posted in the past year than internships.
Joblift is meta search engine for currently more than 1,000,000 jobs from over 100 partner job boards. Joblift’s customised search filters and email notifications allow users to personalise their search criteria. The company was founded in 2015 by Lukas Erlebach and Malte Widenka. At the two locations in Hamburg and Berlin, Joblift currently employs a team of around 50 employees.
