Are you keen to learn a specific skill, in a particular area, whilst working for one of the country's largest housing associations? Then look no further - you have come to the right place.

Orbit is a leading housing provider, with a 50-year heritage, providing homes and services to more than 100,000 people across the UK. We reinvest our profits into building more homes and we are committed to our mission of building communities, by providing high-quality homes in places where our customers are proud to live.

Throughout 2018, Orbit is currently looking to employ exceptional individuals in a wide range of Apprenticeships. Our Apprenticeship Programme will provide you with the opportunity to gain the skills, experience and qualifications you need to secure the job you want, whilst getting paid in full time employment.
