F&T Goodwin is continuing to develop the next generation of employees to meet the growth of our business. Our commitment to focus on creating apprenticeships and providing opportunities for women in the construction industry is starting to take shape; with some great examples highlighted below.
As part of her apprenticeship in the group’s commercial team, Megan Young is currently working with F&T Goodwin director Cathal O’Doyle on managing the database, understanding the scope of work for enquiries, then responding accordingly with quotations, processing information, and also following business leads through to establish the decision on contracts. Meg starts her college course in September and will study for a Level 2 in business administration.
Mason Collins is working as a trainee road surfacing operative, currently learning all about the paver fleet, other associated machinery and equipment and all the relevant skills. There is a huge health and safety element to Mason’s training, which is paramount to any new recruit’s development alongside a real focus on ensuring that the highest possible standards are achieved while engendering pride in the job.
MD Darren Stokes has been really pleased with how the company’s apprenticeship scheme is developing and evolving: “Much has been said in the industry about the importance of investing in people, training and in the skills needed for the sector to capitalise on the potential that exists for growth. The calibre of young employees coming into our business is fantastic, and for us to be able to support them as they develop within F&T Goodwin is great for everyone involved.”
