Ap­pren­tices and man­age­ment trainees rel­ish­ing op­por­tu­nity with con­struc­tion firm

Gloucestershire Echo - - BUSINESS -

» E G Carter & Co Ltd has taken on two ap­pren­tices and two trainees.

The firm is com­mit­ted to at­tend­ing and sup­port­ing nu­mer­ous ca­reer and em­ploy­ment fairs across Glouces­ter­shire.

Each year it re­views its train­ing re­quire­ments and for the last 20 years it has av­er­aged two ap­pren­tices and one man­age­ment trainee per year. This Septem­ber the firm took on two car­pen­try ap­pren­tices and two man­age­ment trainees.

Jake Matthews and Max Ty­ack, both 17, will go down the man­age­ment trainee route, which in­volves hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence and learn­ing, sup­ported by col­lege­based study. Jake and Max have the same goal, to look af­ter and man­age their own sites. Jake said: “I am look­ing for­ward to start­ing my ca­reer in con­struc­tion, I can’t wait to fol­low a project through from start to fin­ish. Know­ing that I will be men­tored by peo­ple who have been through the same process that I’m go­ing through mo­ti­vates me to be the best I can.”

Carlo Thomas, 18, and Robin Han­man, 16, have joined as car­pen­try ap­pren­tices and will be work­ing on var­i­ous sites in the South West as they de­velop their skills. Both will em­bark on a three­year col­lege course to achieve full qual­i­fi­ca­tions. Carlo said: ‘I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to start­ing on-site. My goal is to com­plete my ap­pren­tice­ship and be­come a fully qual­i­fied car­pen­ter. I’m ex­cited to shadow car­pen­ters and learn from their years of ex­pe­ri­ence.”
