Robertson Construction North East welcomes three apprentices to new full time roles

Robertson Construction North East recently celebrated new appointments as three former apprentices join the business in full-time roles.

Kieran Laidler, Martte McCaskill and Thomas Donnelly took advantage of the diverse range of apprenticeship opportunities on offer at Robertson and recently completed their trade apprenticeships.

The trio gained practical onsite experience whilst attending college on a part time basis. Kieran and Martte had the opportunity to develop and master their plumbing skills onsite, at some of the region's newest hotels, student accommodation buildings and universities. Thomas spent time on a variety of Robertson Construction projects and with Robertson Homes to further develop his roofing and flooring skills to complement his joinery experience.

Garry Hope, regional managing director, Robertson North East, said: "Robertson is committed to the learning and development of young people, and an apprenticeship provides the opportunity for a professional qualification aligning studies with practical experience.

"Apprenticeships are an effective way for us to bring talent into the business and address skill gaps in our sector. The platform we provide for our apprentices encourages growth at a professional and personal level and we couldn't be prouder of Kieran, Martte and Thomas.

"All three individuals have excelled during their apprenticeships, showing great enthusiasm and have become an integral part of our team."

Kieran and Martte have joined Robertson Engineering Services as pipefitters/plumbers and Thomas will continue as a joiner within Robertson Construction.

In addition to offering a diverse range of apprenticeships - trade, modern and graduate level positions, Robertson encourages all employees to further their careers through personal continued development and structured training.
