Leicestershire-based housebuilder Davidsons Homes is encouraging new talent into the construction industry, and has welcomed eight new apprentices to its team.
Demonstrating a commitment to bring new talent into the construction industry, Davidsons Homes has taken on three quantity surveyors, three carpenters and joiners, a bricklayer, and a business and administrative assistant in apprenticeship roles.
Jason Glover, Operations Director at Davidsons Homes, said: “Apprenticeship schemes provide young people with the opportunity to work and earn money while they learn new skills and develop existing ones. At Davidsons Homes, we’re a particularly strong advocate for these schemes, as they’re so important in attracting talented people into the construction industry. There are a really wide range of careers for young people to choose from – from skilled positions onsite right through to office-based roles involving planning and architecture.”
Jason Glover continued: “We believe in investing in the future of housebuilding. It is vital in ensuring that we remain at the forefront of the industry and that we continue building homes that appeal to the ever-changing needs and aspirations of real people. We are thrilled to welcome our new apprentices onboard and look forward to seeing them develop their skills and become an intrinsic part of the team in the months and years ahead.”
Davidsons Homes, which has its headquarters in Ibstock, is building at a number of developments in Leicestershire and the surrounding counties.
