Redrow homes recruits 11 apprentices in South Midlands
As part of its 2018 apprentice programme, we will see two plumbing, three electrical, three brickwork and three carpentry apprentices start their construction careers with us.
The apprenticeships allow students with a passion for construction to build vocational skills in their chosen trades, with wider exposure to working on a modern construction development with other contractors.
They will also take part in a course later in their first year, Basic Housebuilding, to learn more about the construction of a house from design to completion and all trades involved, delivered by the L&D team, to give them contextual understanding of some of the work that goes on around them at different stages of build.
The intake follows the success our ongoing apprenticeship scheme, which has been running since 2013. The scheme gives students in the local area an opportunity to gain hands-on experience and build a career in their chosen vocation.
John Mann, managing director of Redrow Homes (South Midlands), said: “Our apprenticeships give individuals the chance to step straight into a career while they continue to learn. A large proportion choose to stay with Redrow Homes, becoming experts in their field as a result - it’s fantastic to have seen so many success stories over the years.
“I welcome the 11 new apprentices to the Redrow team and look forward to watching them grow in their new positions!”
Applications for the South Midland’s 2019 apprenticeship scheme will officially open on 4 March 2019. For further information about vacancies, please visit: www.redrowcareers.co.uk.
