Gelder Group Apprentice Surveyor Jack Bateman (18) would normally travel to a survey with a fully qualified Surveyor, however during the Covid-19 pandemic Jack must now observe social distancing guidelines and he is delighted to have received his own vehicle to ensure he is able to both, continue with his training but also remain safe at work.
Insurance Director Louisa Sharpe commented:
We are working in a new world and having to make changes to normal practice everyday to keep all our staff safe, however we must continue to train and develop all our staff so they are able to move forward with their apprenticeships. This is just one of many initiatives we have adopted towards that goal.
A £3 million development scheme in partnership with Ongo Housing Association and West Lindsey District Council is enabling Gainsborough Construction Career College bricklaying students to gain vital on site experience.
Gelder Group’s Mission is to ‘Inspire a new Generation in construction’ and this scheme of 24 high-quality flats for the over 55’s being situated so close to the towns Gelder sponsored Construction Career College, gives the opportunity for the company to do just that.
Currently there are 6 bricklayer apprentices on site and this will shortly increase to 9. To apply for an apprenticeship with Gelder Group, visit our Apprenticeships page, where you can register your interest.
