Coalville-based developer David Wilson Homes East Midlands has welcomed its latest apprentices to help them develop their skills and knowledge of the trade.
Sam Breacker and Morgan Garrington have joined the leading homebuilder in different roles as they look to begin their careers in construction.
Sam and Morgan are just two of six apprentices to have gained employment in David Wilson Homes’ recent intake across its operational areas of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Warwickshire.
As part of its latest intake, David Wilson Homes has recruited five apprentice bricklayers and one commercial apprentice, who will be working on and off site across its developments.
Sam (19) has joined the team as an Apprentice Bricklayer onsite at David Wilson Homes’ Kibworth development.
Originally from Loughborough, he is studying at Stephenson College in Coalville on the Bricklaying course, where a block release allows him to work in the field with an experienced site team.
Sam said: “Working for David Wilson Homes was a big opportunity for me as it’s a large company with such a strong reputation.
“I’ve really enjoyed being onsite at Kibworth and as I learn my trade, I’m looking forward to being in control of my own future.
“I’m not looking too far ahead, but at the moment I’m just focussing on becoming the best bricklayer I can be.”
Also recruited by David Wilson Homes is Morgan (19) from Leicester who is undertaking the Carpentry and Joinery course at Stephenson College.
Morgan has been working with the site team at Fleckney Fields during a block release, allowing him to gain practical experience.
Morgan said: “For me, the best part of my apprenticeship with David Wilson Homes is getting paid for doing something I enjoy.
“The experience I am gaining on site is bringing me closer to my goal of getting qualified so that I can continue to do a job that I love.”
John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “We are delighted to welcome Sam and Morgan to the team and wish them the best of luck in their careers with us.
“As a leading housebuilder in Leicestershire, we pride ourselves on not only providing a first-class service for our customers, but also ensuring we look after our employees and provide opportunities to progress within the company and achieve their ambitions.”
