The leading housebuilder, which is based in York, has eight new trade apprenticeships available specialising in bricklaying or carpentry and joinery to work across its developments in York, Doncaster, Hull and Harrogate. It will also look to recruit a Commercial Apprentice who will be based at the York head office.

Barratt and David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East has announced these new apprenticeship opportunities ahead of the twelfth annual National Apprenticeship Week, running until March 8, which celebrates the benefits of apprenticeships for individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

Daniel Smith, managing director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East, said: “The construction industry is continuing to grow and this is an exciting time for anyone with an interest in housebuilding to join a market leading company. As one of the country’s top developers we are absolutely committed to developing raw talent and I am proud of the opportunities we are able to provide, as well as the fantastic employees we have gained as a result of apprenticeships.”

The new apprentices, who start in the summer, will be able to start their career learning from one of our award-winning site teams. Based on a housing development site, they will learn skills in bricklaying or carpentry and joinery from experienced tradespeople. They will also spend ten block weeks over 18 months on a challenging and rewarding qualification in their chosen field.

An apprenticeship with Barratt and David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East will provide individuals with all the support, guidance and qualifications they need to build a successful career and build the award-winning developments of the future.
