New apprenticeship

AN opportunity to start building a career in the construction industry is being offered by a regional housing association and building firm working in Skegness.

New Linx Housing Trust, part of Waterloo Housing Group, has joined forces with Carter Homes to offer a two-year apprenticeship for a trainee site manager.

The role will initially be based at New Linx’s new flagship housing project in Skegness. The town’s Barratt Court retirement complex on Lyndhurst Avenue is being redeveloped, and Carter Homes, part of RG Carter Construction, has just been awarded the building contract.

Working as part of the site management team, the successful apprentice will work towards recognised qualifications in construction covering aspects such as health and safety and building methods.

An information drop-in session will be held at the Philip Grove sheltered housing scheme, off Church Road South, in Skegness this Saturday between 10.30am and 3.30pm. Call New Linx on 01507 355 000.
