A £1.5 billion government scheme to get young Britons back into work is being advertised to Romanians considering coming to Britain
Romanians coming to Britain without a job are being offered apprenticeships under a government scheme designed to get unemployed young Britons into a job.
Agencies in Romania are targeting would be migrants wishing to take advantage of recent lifting of the immigration controls and advertising the apprenticeships which pay up to £1000 and on the job training.
One Romanian job agency is offering apprenticeships, which are subsidised by the UK Government, at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants and Chelsea football club.
According to The Sunday Times the Extern job agency in the Romanian town of Cluj is offering a range of apprenticeships paying between £650 and £1000 a month.
European freedom of movement laws mean the UK is powerless to stop EU migrants taking up coveted apprenticeship spots ahead of British people who are also looking for work.
