Apprenticeships are an important way of helping the younger generation with their career aspirations and E G Carter & Co Ltd maintain an ongoing commitment to attend and support numerous career and employment fairs across Gloucestershire.

The events give opportunity for School and University leavers to express interest in the Company’s various trainee schemes. Many of our senior managers; Contracts Managers, Project Managers, Senior Surveyors and Site Managers began their career journey with us as an Apprentice or Management Trainee.

Each year we review our requirements regarding training, and for the last twenty years we have averaged two Apprentices and one Management Trainee per year. This September we took on our most yet, nine new apprentices and Management Trainees, Three Carpentry Apprentices and Six Management Trainees.

Costner Lane, 23 will go down the route of an Assistant Surveyor, the programme involves hands on experience and learning, as Costner already has his HNC he will be furthering his industry knowledge by completing a degree in Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management. Costner said, “I am looking forward to continuing my construction journey, I feel that my degree will help me gain more theoretical knowledge which will then go hand in hand with the practical aspect that I will learn while being mentored by other quantity surveyors out on site.”

Joshua Carter, Director said “We are excited to welcome the new starters to our Company and industry. This is a great milestone for E G Carter & Co Ltd and illustrates the strength of our forward order book and confidence in our long-established team to be able to provide the training and opportunities for our new apprentices and management trainees.

We are looking forward to welcoming the new apprentices and management trainees on their journey with E G Carter & Co Ltd.
