EKFB’s Apprentices account for 4% of the EKFB workforce, of which, 25 are currently based at EKFB’s ‘A422’ construction site near Brackley in Northamptonshire.
This cohort joined the HS2 project last year and are between 5 and ten months into their 18-month-long apprenticeships of practical on-site learning.
The cohort covers a variety of trade apprenticeships, including carpentry, groundworks and steel fixers, learning from their peers on the job.
Works manager, Colin Dunkerton, commented: “Apprentices have a fantastic opportunity at EKFB/HS2 to learn a trade in the construction industry and this also gives the individuals a great start in their construction career. Personally, for me it is a pleasure to engage and pass knowledge and experience onto the younger generations of our team.”
The apprenticeships are supported by EKFB’s six labour providers: Carmichael, Reliable Contactors, VGC, Danny Sullivan Group, Venesky-Brown, and McGinley.
