Redrow to recruit six apprentices

The Lancashire division of national housebuilder Redrow is to recruit six new trade apprentices.

The Chorley-based operation will invite applications in March, with successful candidates joining 250 apprentices on its training programme. The apprentices can choose to study bricklaying, plumbing, joinery, electrics and groundworks, as well as administration and technical roles within the office.

Together with graduates and other trainees, apprentices make up around 15 per cent of Redrow’s workforce who are all on some sort of formal training programme.

Josh Goulding, new entrants programmes manager at Redrow Homes, says: "Apprenticeships give young people the chance to learn a trade and embark on what can be a rewarding and fulfilling career; and with demand for skilled tradesman so high these days, it’s great to help the next generation to qualify.

"We’ll be looking for a variety of apprentices in different trades and applications are welcome from all, not just school leavers. Older applicants are welcome and we’d also love to see more women applying for trade apprenticeships."
