The firm, which won the EDP Business Awards environment and sustainability category, has three apprentices working for the council – two electricians, and a plumber, each mentored by experienced tradesman at the firm – and has made a provisional offer to an electrical apprentice to join them in September.

Jonathan Carver, 19, said: “Having done a plumbing course at college, I have thoroughly enjoyed learning new skills and developing what I already know. I am really enjoying working with the heating engineers at Fosters and being part of the team. It is great to be working on site and picking up new skills.”

Lewis Jones, 19, added: “Going to college and obtaining my level 2 in Electrical Installation has given me a good step into getting a good career and earning good money for my future.”

James Ellis, contracts manager at the company, said: “It is fantastic to help such eager-to-learn youngsters gain experience and education in the trade they wish to pursue. Our apprentices are doing a great job.”
