Are you looking to expand your business? Worried about skills shortages and employee costs? If your business employs less than 250 people, Kent County Council could help you employ an apprentice and help pay for them in the process.

Hiring an apprentice gives you the chance to build the skills you need for your business, and helps a young person get their foot on the career ladder. Find out how to access £2,000 of KCC funding (and maybe even more with national funding) to expand your business today.
