Tackle The Problem is seeking a new recruit.

Tackle The Problem is seeking a new recruit.

North East tackle shop Tackle The Problem in Stockton-on-Tees, Durham seeks a Customer Services Apprentice (NVQ II), announcing the vacancy in December 2014.

The store first revealed the opportunity on its Facebook page – as often happens now with rare jobs that come up in the angling trades.

It’s a 30-hour role on Monday to Friday, and main duties will involve printing and packing internet orders, dealing with customers face to face, telephone, social media and email. There’s stock control in the shop and online, and maintaining e-selling platforms (eBay, Amazon etc). Also assisting in the day to day duties involved in running a tackle shop/internet distribution centre.

The training will be provided by Stockton Council who list the job and lots more details on their Apprentice Job Page.

The minium weekly wage is £105.00 –  the hourly rate depends on your age. That is a clear indicator to anyone thinking the tackle trade is a route to the loots that’s not – and you will probably need to start on a low wage in order to start a career in the wider world of fishing jobs.

It’s day release with Training Provider to study English and maths functional if you are not exempt. Some homework and self study included. Training whilst at work with employer.
