Housebuilder Lovell aims to nurture Norwich’s next generation of carpenters
A homebuilder has taken on three apprentices at a Norwich development as it aims to support the workforce of the future.
Lovell has employed apprentice carpenters Cameron Ward, 18, Billy Ashley, 24, and Myles Tuddenham, 18, to work on its Firs Park site in Hellesdon.
Lovell provides tools and protective clothing for the recruits as well as funding their apprenticeships, including paying college fees. Each apprentice is mentored by Lovell regional training advisor Jo Scott.
Lovell regional managing director Simon Medler said: “We’re very pleased to welcome Billy, Cameron and Myles to our team and look forward to supporting them as they progress their careers. Nurturing the next generation of qualified workers is vital to ensure that Lovell, and the wider industry, has the skilled workforce available to deliver the new homes which are urgently needed across the UK.”
