08 Apr Apprenticeships Work!
If you ever had a doubt that apprenticeships really work and are a sound basis for building a career, read this.
Sherwoods have always focused on building a team from within, giving opportunity to those that are driven to succeed, those that want to progress. Recently two of our ‘apprentices’ celebrated a couple of milestones.
To start with, Jamie Bonner, joined Sherwoods as an electrical apprentice 16 years ago – those that know us will be aware that Jamie is now our Operations Director, heading up an ever growing team that now covers the whole of the South West and South Wales. Driving the business forward to achieve our mission to become the FM Building Services Partner & Employer of Choice Across the South West Region
Secondly, this week, Kirk Bailey celebrated 14 years with Sherwoods, starting as a Plumbing and Mechanical Services apprentice, Kirk worked hard and completed his Gas qualifications and then stepped up to take on Team Leader role. Now he is managing the entire gas and HVAC team of over 20 engineers and has built a solid career with us.
So, an apprentice with Sherwoods really does have a future with us, we have several apprentices, across all of our trades and in our head office at Newton Abbot, what will we be saying in 15 years time, where will they be…who knows, but you can be certain that if someone within our organisation has the desire to succeed we will support them all the way.
We are, as always Building a Future With You
