Waverly apprentice success
Young people complete apprenticeships.
The old adage that ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ has never been truer than for an excellent crop of young apprentices who, in 2015, joined Waverley Housing on the first step toward their chosen careers. Four years on, and the association is delighted that Ruaridh MacLeod (joinery), Harris Campbell (roofing), Jack McDonald (painting and decorating) and Steven Drummond (joinery) have completed their apprenticeships.
Last year, Jenny Sharp also completed her business administration apprenticeship and joined the company in a permanent post and Monica Riddell is moving into the second year of her apprenticeship in painting and decorating.
Fraser Kelly, Waverley Housing’s Chief Executive, said:
“This is a fantastic group of young people who have justified the approach Waverley Housing has taken to offering apprenticeships. Not only did we see Jenny, Ruaridh, Harris, Jack and Steven develop their technical skills and knowledge, but we saw their confidence and self-esteem flourish.
“We’re delighted that Jack and Steven are also staying with Waverley, in permanent jobs – we now have eight permanent employees who started their career with Waverley Housing on an apprenticeship – and that Ruaridh and Harris have both moved on to other local businesses. We wish them all every success in their future careers.
“Back in 2015, Waverley Housing received Scotland’s Modern Apprenticeship Award in the small and medium sized employers’ category. We were delighted to accept the award back then, but the effort, commitment and success of Jenny Ruaridh, Harris, Jack and Steven says so much more than a trophy or a plaque.”
If you would like to join the list of successful Waverley Housing apprentices, and have an interest in Business Administration, Waverly has just the opportunity for you.
