A property developer is looking to help lay the foundations of potential careers after opening applications for its apprenticeship scheme.

Story Homes is looking to recruit 12 apprentices in both joinery and bricklaying across the north east, north west, and Cumbria, with successful applicants being offered apprenticeships in these trades.

The scheme aims to recruit school and college leavers from 16 years upwards and offers a full development programme, including on-the-job training and the potential to move into trainee site management.

Shelley Hayward, Story Homes’ talent and development manager, said: “There has never been a better time to consider an apprenticeship, with more businesses understanding the unique benefits of on-the-job training than ever before.

“We have always valued the hands-on approach of apprenticeships and many of our former apprentices have achieved great things within the business.”

“Being an apprentice at Story Homes offers candidates more than just an earn-while-you-learn experience – we plan for everyone’s future careers.

“We can’t wait to review the applications and meet our next group of new recruits.”

The developer is working alongside My Kinda Futures to run the recruitment process, which will involve a telephone interview and completion of a real-life brief at an assessment centre.
