We’ve welcomed our new intake of apprentices as part of our commitment to supporting the next generation to build a career in construction.
Three apprentices aged between 18 and 32, are the latest cohort to join the firm.
The apprentices; Isaac White, Ellie Mason and Teri Martin, will be completing qualifications in Commercial, Technical and Finance at our Torquay head office over the next 24 months.
Sophie Aylott, People & Culture Manager said: “Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to encourage young adults to explore the wealth of opportunities available in the construction sector, whilst getting hands-on experience and job-based training.
“We’re proud to support alternative routes into housebuilding to ensure that the next generation of homebuilders are given the best start in their roles and have the skills and expertise to be able to train future construction professionals. We’re excited to welcome our new apprentices, especially during National Apprenticeship Week, and we look forward to supporting them as they start their careers.”
Our previous intake of apprentices have all secured full-time positions in our IT, HR and Quantity Surveying Teams.
As part of our commitment to providing alternative routes into homebuilding, we recently supported Rebecca Carruthers through her NHBC Level 4 Management course. Having started as a Site Operative, she is now working at our Equinox III development in Exeter as an Assistant Site Manager.
Grayham Tucker, Group Managing Director added: “We want to inspire people to join the construction industry and to make sure they are given a solid foundation as they start their careers. I’m looking forward to seeing our new apprentices flourish and grow into their roles, as they prepare to be the next industry leaders.”
The apprentices will split their time between attending college to gain their National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) and working as paid employees at Cavanna Homes, gaining valuable mentorship from our experienced teams.
