Innovative collaboration continues to go from strength to strength

Another 10 higher apprentices have been welcomed to the engineering course run in collaboration with Coleg Cambria.

Seven apprentices have already completed the four-year programme, which starts with a Higher National Certificate (HNC) and finishes with a Higher National Diploma (HND).

They are now working on national projects, with the latest intake looking to follow in their footsteps



Opportunities for all – whatever the background and experience

From working at a care home to becoming a plant operative apprentice is not the typical career path, but there’s nowhere else Sophie Evans would rather be.

Inspired by the idea of driving lorries as a youngster, the 20-year-old from Llan Ffestiniog, left her care home job to join the apprenticeship scheme at Jones Bros.



There’s a chance to help inspire others as you move up the ladder

Project engineer Hari Evans, a former higher apprentice, has been overseeing eight new recruits onsite at £36 million tidal energy project Morlais.

Hari was also on hand to give people a glimpse into life working in civil engineering at the Royal Welsh Show.



Hard work and dedication can yield impressive results

Former higher apprentice, Gwion Lloyd, lifted a trophy at the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) Wales awards.

Gwion was named joint-winner of the most promising trainee civil engineer (non-graduate) honour just a fortnight before he turned 23.



Setting the standard! Health and safety is always top of our priorities

Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK are carrying out construction on Dogger Bank Wind Farm. They are currently at a site on Grange Road near Driffield, and they have amassed 500,000 hours without a lost time injury.

We were presented with a gold award from The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for continuing to set the highest of health and safety standards.

Having earned this award for 14 years, we also scooped the President’s Award, given to companies that have continuously achieved gold status for a decade or more.

The fine work was highlighted at the world’s largest offshore wind farm, Dogger Bank, as we celebrated 500,000 hours without recording a single lost time incident (LTI).
