A young West Wales apprentice is staying in the ‘Persimmon family’ after successfully transferring to the North East business.

Carpenter, Jordan Jeans, has been learning his trade with the Penllergaer-based business but his family are relocating to the North East.

West Wales’ Apprentice Master, Kevin Rattenbury, has worked with Jordan to ensure he completes his NVQ Level 2 qualification and on his transfer to the new region.

Commenting, West Wales’ apprentice master, Kevin Rattenbury, said:

“Everyone at Persimmon West Wales would like to wish Jordan the very best of luck with his move to the North East.

“Jordan is a skilled carpenter but most importantly is a good lad, well mannered, punctual and always keen to learn.

“As we strive to become Britain’s leading homebuilder, we want to offer our employees exciting, varied careers where talent is recognised, nurtured and offered opportunities.

“This is one such example where positive intercompany cooperation is allowing us to retain talented employees and deliver on an employee’s wish to remain within the Persimmon family.”

Jordan said:

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at West Wales, and I am very pleased to have completed my NVQ Level 2, which was the goal before my transfer.

“I’d like to thank the team at West Wales and particularly my line manager Kevin Rattenbury for guiding me through my journey to date, and assisting with my qualifications and transfer.

“I can’t wait to get started at North East.”
