A PET shop in Sonning Common is running an apprenticeship scheme.
The Pet Barn in Blounts Court Road is looking for a sales assistant.
Duties would include serving and advising customers, tidying the shop, taking deliveries and providing a carry-to-car service.
The apprentice will receive an NVQ level three management qualification at the end.
Owner Nikki Dobson said: “We would like someone with a nice, friendly smile who will be flexible and mix with the team.”
She said the role would give the youngster confidence.
The shop is working with JHP Training, which will provide a £1,500 grant and advertise the vacancy.
