The apprentice roles launched this week include vacancies for:
- 3 Electricians

- 1 Roofer
These will be open for application from now until 30 th
April 2019 – with the placements starting in September 2019.
Applications are encouraged from people of all ages, regardless of background.
Chief Executive of St Leger Homes, Paul Tanney, said:
“We’re delighted to be launching our trades apprentice opportunities this week to coincide with National Apprenticeship Week. These nine roles will work alongside the fantastic apprentices we currently have across the business in trades and office roles.
“We pride ourselves on offering local people high quality, on-the-job training, in a welcoming and supportive environment. Around 97% of our former trades apprentices go on to secure full time employment within our business, and it’s great to retain that knowledge and enthusiasm.
“We offer fantastic learning opportunities that can turn into fantastic careers. Please visit https://www.stlegerhomesjobs.co.uk/ to see what’s on offer and consider applying today.”
What our apprentices say:
Jordan, Joinery Apprentice:
“I’m doing a joinery apprenticeship for St Leger Homes. You’re doing different stuff all the time. I’d love to stay with St Leger Homes for a bit, they are a good company.
Raechel, Electrician Apprentice:
“I’m doing an electrical apprenticeship. It’s made quite a huge difference actually because I never knew what I wanted to do. Doing this apprenticeship opened my eyes to what there is. I wanted to do something different. I wanted to earn a good living. As well there’s quite a big gap in the market for female electricians. It’s a nice feeling when you’ve done the work, being appreciated for what you’ve done.”
George, Plumbing Apprentice:
“I’m an apprentice plumber. It’s not always straightforward and you have to think outside the box. It’s just something I’ve always really been interested in since being through school. I hope to get a full time job here. Being somewhere where you can make a difference and you can help people, it’s really fulfilling.”
