Construction and consultancy firm LGG Projects will be training the next generation as part of an annual intake of apprentices.
The firm has announced that it will be appointing a minimum of two apprentices a year across a variety of disciplines.
LGG Projects provides integrated services within the property and construction sector from high-end domestic alterations, renovations and commercial developments to self-build projects and fit-outs.
The firm’s new apprenticeship initiative has begun with the appointment of Simon Chaldecott from Grantham, who joins the firm as a business administration apprentice.
In his new position, Simon will be responsible for performing administrative tasks and providing marketing support for the firm at its office on Tentercroft Street.
Paul Jakuc, director of LGG Projects, said: “We understand how important it is to inspire and support the next generation as there continues to be a skills shortage in the industry.
“We hope that we can provide valuable knowledge and experience to help young people thrive within the sector.”
Simon, 18, said: “The team have already been extremely supportive and are dedicating their time and energy to enhancing my skill set.
“I’m excited to see where this opportunity takes me.”
