Six new recruits have joined the team at Housing Solutions in Maidenhead as part of a year-long apprenticeship scheme.
The teenagers, all aged 16 to 18, joined the affordable homes provider, which is based off Waldeck Road, last week.
Over the coming 12 months they will work in various office-based roles with the aim of getting a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) Level 2 at the end.
John Petitt, group chief executive at Housing Solutions said: "We have created six very different office based jobs that will give them lots of experience and a qualification, to help them on their way to a great career in the future."
The teenagers have been recruited as part of a government scheme to offer employment and training to more young people.
Three of them are tenants of the housing association.
The scheme is being supported by national training provider Key Training.
