David Wilson Homes is continuing its positive work to support local employment, by creating new roles to develop talent in the construction industry across the East Midlands.
The five-star housebuilder has recruited six new apprentices, including five apprentice bricklayers and one commercial apprentice, to work across its developments in Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Warwickshire.
The new additions come ahead of the 13th annual National Apprenticeship Week, which runs from 3rd to the 7th of February and celebrates the benefits of apprenticeships for individuals, businesses and the wider economy across the country.
For 13 years, National Apprenticeship Week has brought together apprenticeship supporters from across the country, with MPs, ambassadors, apprentices, training providers and top employers getting involved in recognising the value and importance of apprenticeships.
John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands said: “The construction industry is continuing to grow and this is an exciting time for anyone with an interest in housebuilding to join a market-leading company.
“As one of the country’s top developers, we are absolutely committed to developing raw talent and I believe that we have a duty to provide these kinds of apprenticeship opportunities.”
The new trade apprentices, who start in September, will be based on a housing development site in the county and will learn skills from experienced tradespeople for four days a week.
They will also spend one day a week at college undertaking a qualification in their chosen field.
All programmes are well-structured and tailored to individual needs. Apprentices will receive encouragement, support and guidance to help them develop, giving the skills and qualifications for a successful career.
