With this week signifying the launch of its latest apprenticeship roles, experienced contractor and leading local employer, HMS, is thrilled to announce that it will take on 30 apprentices in September.
A variety of apprenticeships are available which focus on both business and trade roles and offer applicants the chance to apply to become a valued member of the HMS team. There are opportunities for Electricians and Heating Engineers, Plumbers, Plasterers or Joiners in addition to back-office roles such as Scheduling and Surveying.
Committed to creating and supporting a variety of business and trade apprenticeships, HMS has taken on over 100 Apprentices since its amalgamation with the Torus Group in January 2019 with a number of them becoming fully qualified this year.
Discussing HMS’ latest apprenticeship recruitment campaign, Managing Director, Paul Worthington, said: “There is a clear skills gap in the construction industry, and I believe apprenticeships are the best way to proactively address the shortfall of qualified tradespeople we have across the sector.
“Apprenticeships not only offer a sustainable, long-term training and employment opportunity for individuals, they positively contribute to the local economy by upskilling its communities and keeping sought-after trades in the local area and as a largescale employer, this is what we want to encourage.
“For HMS, Apprenticeships are a long-term investment, and a number of our current Managers and Leaders, including myself, began their career as an Apprentice, so I know that this can be an important and career-defining first step for many and I am looking forward to welcoming our next cohort of Apprentices to the team seeing where this opportunity can take them.”
As part of the Torus Group, HMS apprentices’ benefit from support and guidance from the Torus Foundation, which includes support with interviews and writing CVs, applying for a CSCS Card and driving lessons. This ensures apprentices are given the best chance to succeed and can flourish in their career at HMS.
