Apprenticeships in Liverpool have increased from just 2,110 starts in 2006 to 5,870 in 2013. These Office for National Statistics figures show how Merseyside has always had a strong tradition of apprenticeships – in part due to its close ties to the shipping transport and marine industries - but that this heritage has grown in very recent times.
Liverpool is one of the biggest cities in the UK with a population of just under 500,000 people. This status is reflected in the diversity of industries available, nearly all of which will be actively looking for apprentices. So whether you want to work in manufacturing, tourism, service industries or retail then you will find something in Liverpool to suit your requirements.
Another important sector for jobs is public administration and health. Employment in the public sector accounts for some 40% of the total within the city so important government departments like HM Passport Offices, HMRC and the Criminal records Bureau have regular first job vacancies.
