NPT Homes Launches Apprenticeship Recruitment Drive

NPT Homes is the largest social housing provider in South West Wales and it’s investing in the future skills of the community by launching a recruitment drive to find four new apprentices.

They are looking to recruit four committed people who are passionate about construction to pilot a new Level 3 Multi Trade Maintenance Operative Apprenticeship.

The eighteen month long apprenticeships are up for grabs in the social housing provider’s maintenance department.

The programme has been designed to upskill applicants who have already gained a level 2 qualification in a craft trade or who have equivalent experience in the construction industry. The multi trade qualification will include skills in carpentry, plastering, bricklaying, plumbing, painting, roofing and labouring work.

When qualified, the successful applicants will be equipped to enjoy a varied and engaging work environment, carrying out a wide range of repair and maintenance work in both occupied and empty properties.

Josh Greenwood joined NPT Homes as a 3 year apprentice in 2012, said:

“Since joining NPT Homes I have been able to put the theory I have learnt at college into practice through some fantastic on the job training which has provided me with a wide range of building maintenance skills.

Recently I have been lucky enough to have been taken on as a multi trade Maintenance Operative following the completion of my apprenticeship and I’m looking forward to my career with NPT Homes.”

Gareth John, Head of Property and Maintenance, said:

“NPT Homes is investing significantly in the local area in terms of enhancing our properties, improving our communities and creating employment opportunities. We own 9200 homes in Neath Port Talbot so have a varied and challenging environment where people can learn skills that will serve them well through their working life.”

This unique apprenticeship opportunity allows people to earn while they learn in a diverse sector gaining a real qualification and a real future.”
