EIGHT apprentices have been taken on by a South Yorkshire building company and housing firm.
Kier and Bernseslai Homes have given opportunities to Danny Hepple, Shane Kirkbright, Ellie Sellars, Rachel Herring, Daniel Williams, Ryan Davidson, Emma Hamer and Nicholas Moore.
The apprentices – including painters, bricklayers, roofers, electricians and office-based staff – will work on Barnsley’s property repairs and improvement partnership, which looks after council houses in the borough.
After a rigorous selection process, they were enrolled onto the scheme and will have the chance to gain on -site experience alongside a qualified mentor while receiving formal training at college.
Stephen Davis, Berneslai Homes’ director, said: “We are delighted to provide a step on the career ladder for them.”
