Jessup have been recognised for employing apprentices through Walsall Housing Groups’ Apprenticeship Scheme. Nineteen-year-old bricklaying apprentice Sam comments “So far I’m loving it. I’m taking everything on board both at the Skills Centre and on site. Getting the practical experience is important in a trade like bricklaying, so I’m thankful to WHG and Jessup for giving me the opportunity”
Sam is the third apprentice taken on by Jessup this month, with two apprentice carpenters also starting work on our sites. Peter Butler, General Manager said: “We are a local company and have a policy of employing local suppliers and subcontractors supplemented by new apprentices to help fill the skills shortage”.
