Build a Career with Redrow in Telford or Leicester
Apprenticeships in Telford and Leicester are among 100 trainee roles available with award-winning housebuilder Redrow.
There are still five apprentice vacancies available with the company’s Tamworth-based Midlands business, including opportunities to acquire skills in brickwork, carpentry, plumbing and electrical trades on sites in Telford and Leicester.
New entrant programme manager Clare Horton said: “Redrow has a strong record for training and development and in the last year we’ve trained more than 430 apprentices, both on site and in office roles. Last year the Midlands division received more than 200 applications from would-be apprentices and we’re anticipating a similar number this year. We’re looking for enthusiastic people who want to earn a wage while they learn new skills and start building a successful career.”
Almost 5,000 days of training are undertaken across Redrow’s business each year and 15% of all employees are trainees.
Hayden Willan, 23, from Leicester, has risen through the Redrow ranks from an apprentice joiner to his current role as assistant site manager at Cawston Meadows, Rugby.
“I joined Redrow in 2010 and divided my time between working on site and attending Leicestershire College, achieving an NVQ in carpentry and joinery,” Hayden recalls.
“It’s something I’d definitely recommend as Redrow’s apprenticeship programme gave me a solid start to my career, enabling me to earn while I learned. I’ve been able to build on that with further training and hopefully in the not too distant future I’ll be running my own site.”
Redrow is one of the National Apprenticeship Service’s (NAS) top 100 Apprenticeship Employers.
And, as a member of The 5% Club, the housebuilder is committed to ensuring 5% of its workforce are apprentices, trainees or graduates in the next five years – a figure it’s already exceeding three-fold.
