Redrow Homes says its successful applicants will work across developments including Castle Fields, a development with four bedroom homes situated in the village of Barton Seagrave.

The apprenticeships will allow students with a passion for construction to build their vocational skills, and will focus on most aspects of house building, including bricklaying, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, groundworks, drylining and decorating.

John Mann, managing director of Redrow Homes (South Midlands), said: “As part of our ongoing commitment to apprenticeships, we ensure a number of spaces are made available annually.

Karen Jones, Group HR Director, Redrow, said: “Apprenticeships are a way of futureproofing the UK workforce, particularly in sectors where there is a skills shortage.”
