THE body which runs the North York Moors National Park has backed a campaign to encourage more employers to take on apprentices.

The North York Moors National Park Authority has joined seven other employers from across England in the adverts which focus on the quality of apprenticeships and how they can help businesses to grow.

The adverts coincide with four vacancies for conservation apprentices based at the authority’s headquarters, in Helmsley.

The authority, which reached the regional final of the Government’s Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer contest last year, was selected to take part in the advertising campaign in recognition of its on-going commitment to helping young people to grow and develop through apprenticeships.

It is estimated the adverts will reach 25 million people when they are broadcast later this month on national and regional commercial radio stations.
