Stewart Milne joins Apprentice 100 campaign
Published: 25 Sep 2015
One lucky individual will have the chance to build themselves a successful career in the construction industry as part of the Press and Journal’s Apprentice 100 campaign.
We can announce today that Stewart Milne Group is pledging one apprentice to the programme and will join the roll of honour alongside Johnstons of Elgin, St Swithin Nursery, CPS and NSYS, who were also revealed this week.
The group has already recruited 15 new apprentices this summer who will gain the skills and experience to enable them to develop careers in a dynamic, growth industry with the National House Building Council five-star-rated house builder.
John Low, managing director of Stewart Milne Homes North, said: “Nurturing future talent is an essential part of business planning in all industries but can often be overlooked. It is at the core of what we do as a business and we are delighted that the Apprentice 100 campaign is really highlighting the issue, which will encourage more companies to think seriously about how they engage with the workforce of tomorrow. Well done to the Press and Journal for championing this cause within the business agenda.”
He said that while apprenticeships were traditionally seen as a route into trade for school leavers, career changers as well as young people are increasingly recognising the wide range of careers, projects and progression opportunities available in the 21st-century construction industry.
