Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018: Past, Present and Future Talent

To end our week of focussing on apprentices in celebration of Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018, we have been reflecting on the past, present and future talent we are privileged to have.

As a company with ‘People’ as a core value, we continuously invest in our workforce. This includes regular investment in apprenticeships across multiple divisions including Specialist Fit-Out, Manufacturing, Decorating and M&E Services.

As an example, our Manufacturing team is comprised of a large number of apprentices and former apprentices. We currently have a group of new and existing apprentices across a range of disciplines: joinery, machining and french polishing. One of our apprentice joiners is currently undertaking training in our Setting Out department; an excellent opportunity to broaden his knowledge and experience.

Our current apprentices are certainly in great company within our 30,000 sq. ft. factory. The Manufacturing team have retained a number of former apprentices including time-served joiners, machine men and a french polisher. Indeed even our management team includes former apprentices – including Michael Hillman, Manufacturing Manager, and Billy Hynes, Manufacturing Director, who were both profiled for last year’s Scottish Apprenticeship Week.

Pictured below are a group of current and former apprentices from our Manufacturing division.

Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018: Current Apprentice David

We like to give our apprentices a well-rounded experience throughout their apprenticeship, combining college-based learning with practical work experience in our factory and on our sites.  Our apprentices actually get to experience some of our biggest and most challenging sites, giving them a taste of the work they will be tasked with when they complete their apprenticeships.

David is currently in the first year of his apprenticeship and is already getting to work on the new ibis Styles Hotel project in Glasgow city centre.  This is undoubtedly a very exciting site for him to be involved in early in his career, especially since he gets to work with a highly experienced team with many years of experience.

David is another young member of our team with a bright future ahead of him.
