Our award-winning apprenticeship scheme is the first step towards a successful career in building repairs and maintenance, all under the guidance of an experienced and dedicated mentor.
We're on the lookout for ambitious apprentices who are committed to providing our customers with the best possible service and are keen to achieve a professional qualification, gaining invaluable hands-on experience along the way.
This year we are recruiting to the following trades:
- Gas Fitter x 1
- Plumber x 2
- Joiner x 1
- Electrician x 1
- Bricklayer x 1
Starting pay rate of £8,500.00 upwards, depending on age and stage achieved in apprenticeship qualification.
Apprentices commit to a 3 or 4 year apprenticeship depending on their chosen trade which includes studying towards an NVQ, at level 2 or 3.
In addition to receiving a nationally recognised qualification, you'll develop skills and confidence, gain experience and learn a trade to benefit your future career aspirations.
In exchange for your enthusiasm and willingness to learn, we'll provide top class training, work experience and supervision. You'll be working on a range of properties, undertaking repairs and improvement works to customers' homes and preparing empty homes for new tenants. Duties will involve moving and handling of equipment and materials, use of various tools, working at height using ladders and scaffold and working outdoors – at all times of the year!
To succeed you will demonstrate your ability for practical work and great communication skills. We also want to see your ability to follow instructions and to work as part of a team, as well as commitment to work hard, attend college regularly and complete your course work.
Our apprentices enjoy a friendly and supportive working environment, a good annual leave entitlement, access to our in-house training programme and professional support – which includes a dedicated mentor. We have an excellent record of developing and supporting our apprentices and many go on to successfully gain permanent jobs with us.
