Apprentices in the West Midlands soar to new heights

Two apprentices in the West Midlands working with us have seen their careers take a flying start.

Tom Watson and Cailen Stevens trained to become bricklayers through our apprenticeship programme, enabling them to become skilled in their trades. They are both now working with our contractors whilst having gained a theoretical background in bricklaying.

Tom and Cailen both completed their apprenticeships with distinction and are now transferring to one of our brick work teams. Training for the apprentices is provided by SBC Training, based in Shrewsbury.

Daniel Hassall, Managing Director at Persimmon Homes West Midlands, said: “At Persimmon, we’re passionate about developing future talent and equipping our apprentices with the practical skills they need to thrive in the working world, as well as ensuring they have the necessary theoretical background from our partnerships with local colleges.

“It’s a delight to work with our apprentices on a daily basis, helping to coach them throughout the early stages of their career and watch them develop their skills.”
