Chance to take first steps in civil engineering28th Oct 2013

Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK is looking for six new apprentices for 2014.

The company is searching for young people to join its plant operative apprentice scheme, based at Jones Bros’ training centre in Ruthin.

Applicants must be aged 18 or over, possess a full driving licence, and be available to take part in an interview process during the first two weeks of December.

The apprenticeship programme is due to begin on Monday, January 27, providing a unique opportunity for participants to learn construction plant skills, earn a wage and gain NVQ level qualifications.

Successful candidates will spend ten weeks at the dedicated Jones Bros training centre, before applying their new skills at one of the company’s construction sites located across the UK.

This will be the fifth batch of new recruits taken on by Jones Bros since it started its apprenticeship scheme in November 2010.

Ruth James, commercial manager for Jones Bros, said: “We are proud of the strong track record of trainees going on to take full-time roles with Jones Bros.

“The ability to be flexible is crucial, as we win work all over the country. A good attitude, enthusiasm and having a strong client focus, the ability to understand and carry out what our clients are looking for, are also really important.

“It helps to have work experience, but it can be difficult for young people to get it in this industry, so we’re really looking for these sorts of personal qualities to shine through. It’s about finding the right mix.”
