Persimmon Homes

New appointment at Central region

14 October 2022

A new technical trainee has been appointed at the Central region.

Remy Baker, from Donisthorpe, has joined the company’s Technical team as a technical trainee and will focus on architecture and engineering.

In 2021, Remy undertook work experience with us, which gave him an insight into the industry and identified a potential career path for him.

Commenting on his appointment Remy said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining Persimmon Homes at a time when they have recently secured their 5 star quality rating. I am joining a great team and I am particularly looking forward to understanding the technical side of the business and putting to good use the skills I learnt in sixth form.”

As part of his formal training, Remy attends Burton College one day a week where he is studying for an HNC in Building Studies.

Nick Wilkins, Technical Director at Persimmon Homes said: “When Remy joined me for work experience, he took to it like a duck to water and I could see the potential in him. I was delighted he found the experience to be positive and has now joined the team as a technical trainee where he will be able to develop his skills and build a successful career for himself at Persimmon Homes.”

As well as developing his career within the industry, Remy has aspirations to build his own home one day.
