With over 16 million unique users a month to ebay in the UK alone, the Auction giant is now choosing to pick its latest set of recruits from grassroots level to better develop and mould them into eBay experts.
A new apprentice programme has been launched to help support and maintain the growing number of new businesses that use eBay as a trading point.
Susan Harris of Durham Training explains: “E-commerce is a fast growing market that allows businesses to keep their overheads low. We are keen to support this sector with apprentices who have the right skills to help them prosper. Lots of young people are very online savvy, keen to learn and begin a career in e-commerce.”
If successful the apprentices will be trained in general office administration and eBay sales. This will be beneficial to the apprentices as it will add value to their business knowledge outside the eBay sales role. Businesses that are looking to grow within the eBay trading sector of sales may be eligible for a £1500 government grant.
Durham training teamed up with Access training sometime ago and has launched many training programs but has seen a gap in the market with eBay , in creating roles which will help growing businesses and unemployment within the Teesside area.
