In particular, Shannon Abdo, who started as an apprentice in administration three years ago has successfully completed her NVQ Level 3 Qualification in Business Administration. A lot of hard work and determination gained her a distinction in all areas of her qualification.

Managing director Neil Jukes said: “As we continue to expand our business, we continue to support the younger generation in offering apprenticeships within our group and across the industry. This is a great way to start a career in the construction section and provides the opportunity for young men and women alike to choose from a number of trades including bricklaying, carpentry and joinery, general construction and plastering. Apprentices are placed with a mentor enabling knowledge to be handed down to the next generation.”
