It’s National Apprenticeship Week and we are delighted to celebrate this showcase for vocational training, particularly in Property Plus, where apprentices now make up 12 percent of our workforce.
Apprentices work within electrical, home improvement, facilities management and administrative functions in Property Plus, with opportunities now available for ambitious people wanting to become plumbers, electricians, carpenters and heating engineers.
By constructing a career with an apprenticeship at Property Plus, you will be joining one of the UK’s best teams. You’ll be busy, too — in 2017 this award-winning team delivered repairs and maintenance services worth around £20 million. This included nearly 26,000 repairs, fitting hundreds of new kitchens and bathrooms and installing 700 energy efficient boilers.
Our apprenticeship programme was shortlisted for a national award this year, recognising the fantastic career opportunities available to apprentices, all of whom come from local communities.
Andy Wimlett is a great example of how our exceptional training and support leads to a rewarding career. The former apprentice has just been appointed facilities manager.
He said: “The training and support helped me develop my skills so I could see a clear career path and stay working at a place I love. I feel very proud of all my achievements so far.”
Please note: we are now closed for applications for 2019/20.
