David Wilson Homes East Midlands is continuing its positive work to support local employment, by creating three new roles to develop talent across Leicestershire in the construction industry.
The leading housebuilder, which is based in Coalville, aims to recruit two new trade apprentices specialising in bricklaying to work across its developments in Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Warwickshire.
It will also look to recruit a Technical Apprentice who will have a role based at head office.
The vacancies come ahead of the twelfth annual National Apprenticeship Week, running from March 4th-8th, which celebrates the benefits of apprenticeships for individuals, businesses and the wider economy.
The introduction of the National Apprenticeship Levy in April of 2017 has helped to promote the idea that apprenticeships provide an alternative route to traditional education. The full cost of training and assessment will be funded from the Barratt and David Wilson Levy contributions.
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 summer, will be based on a housing development site in the county and will learn skills in bricklaying or carpentry and joinery from experienced tradespeople.
They will also spend ten block weeks over 18 months at our training partner, Stephenson College, on an intensively delivered 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.
