Two North Tyneside teenagers have secured apprenticeships with a leading house builder.
Dylan Mason and Steven Robson are among six apprentices taken on by Miller Homes at its developments across the region and head office in North Shields.
Dylan, 17, of Killingworth, has been taken on as an apprentice joiner at the Wheatfields development in Seaton Delaval, while Steven, 17, from Wallsend, is an apprentice quantity surveyor.
Over the next two years they will combine practical work and training with college studies, resulting in a recognised qualification and potential full time job offer.
Patrick Arkle, Miller Homes North East’s operations director, said: “We strive to develop employment opportunities in the locations where we are building communities and highly value the importance of offering that first step on the career ladder to aspiring youngsters.”
“Just as apprentices bring so much to the business, an apprenticeship with Miller Homes can offer so much to individuals, including the opportunity to work with some of our award-winning site managers, gain on-the-job work experience, benefit from high quality training, as well as achieving a recognised industry qualification and the possibility of a permanent job offer.
“We’re really keen to grow our talent from within, with many of our team having joined us as apprentices, developing their skills alongside the business’ development.”
