The ongoing success and growth of the housing industry relies heavily on the talent and skills of the younger generation. Apprentices are key to this which is why we have an established apprenticeship programme which really helps to shape and grow our young talent.
The combination of practical on site learning along with gaining a professional qualification creates a great foundation to start your career. During the programme Crest Nicholson supports you to gain an NVQ Level 2 and if possible level 3 qualification. By working closely alongside you and your college we can give you the skills and experience you need to gain your qualification to achieve your career goal of becoming an established and qualified tradesperson.
We have a great team who have years of valuable experience which we can pass down to you. For example, you’ll benefit from a dedicated mentor throughout your fixed term contract who will be on hand to help you every step of the way.
There’s even the opportunity to eventually grow your career further through the Site Management Academy which offers a bespoke training programme to give you the skills you need to manage an entire construction development.
