Mulalley and Basildon Council welcomed 12 new apprentices onto their brand new apprenticeship training scheme which combines practical work experience within a site environment with studies at college.
A celebratory lunch was held at Mulalley’s Basildon site office to welcome the 12 new apprentices and the project staff got to meet the keen new employees.
The two-year multi-trade scheme is bespoke with Prospects College and involves the apprentices learning skills in plumbing, tiling and decorating.
Mulalley Director Bruce Benson said ‘Our scheme has proved to be a huge success in other areas and we are delighted to be working in partnership with Basildon Council and Prospects College.
‘It was a pleasure to meet the new apprentices and we look forward to building on the success of the training scheme and helping them achieve a qualification and forge a career in the industry.’
Councillor Phil Turner, deputy leader and cabinet member for housing, said: ‘It is the council’s vision to create opportunity and by offering these apprenticeships Mulalley are helping to create opportunity for young people in the borough by giving them a firm platform into the world of work.
‘This experience will put them in good stead and enable them to take their first steps on the career ladder in a friendly and supportive environment.’
Mulalley is the sole contractor on Basildon Borough Council’s internal Decent Homes Programme , delivering £28 million improvements works to half the boroughs housing stock.
