This support would be 5,000 euros per year for apprentices under the age of 18 and 8,000 euros per year for those over 18, thus making it possible to take charge of the almost all of the costs relating to a first year of apprenticeship.

“The perfume-cosmetics sector brings together several thousand companies and represents more than 300,000 jobs. Each year, it welcomes and trains the equivalent of 10% of its workforce in research, production, training and distribution professions, ie 29,000 students or apprentices, in work-study or continuing education. Competitiveness cluster, professional federation, unions, we can only congratulate ourselves on this government initiative. To answer them, it was therefore normal for CFAs, schools and companies in the sector to take their responsibilities and, already, mobilize to offer future apprentices contract and status. The objective is to allow 10,000 young people, women and men, to join our sector, indicate the representatives of the sector in a press release. The players in perfumery and cosmetics, at the origin of France's second foreign trade surplus, will thus not only contribute to the development of new talents who will provide the skills necessary for the future of a world-leading industry. , but also, at a time when the activity of factories and laboratories in the sector is restarting, thanks to their employees, while its commercial networks, shops, pharmacies or mass distribution, find their customers, to participate effectively in the recovery economy that our country needs.
