CCG to take on 16 new trade apprentices
CCG (Scotland) Ltd has announced it will take on a minimum of 16 trade apprentices in 2019.
The Glasgow-based construction firm will offer each of the new recruits – aged between 16 and 21 - an industry-recognised, four-year programme covering both the practical and theoretical skills of bricklaying, plumbing and joinery trades.
Formally commencing their chosen programme in August, the apprentices will help support the firm’s business strategy that will see up to 1,500 homes constructed per year across the central belt of Scotland in areas such as Glasgow, Edinburgh, East Ayrshire and West Dunbartonshire.
CCG also offers trainee programmes for internal progression and to the external market currently employing 29 people in estimating, buying, site management, timber frame design, and health and safety roles.
The company will continue to recruit trainees with 10 new entrants expected to join in their forthcoming financial year.
Alastair Wylie, chairman and CEO of CCG, said: “Our apprenticeship programme allows young people to work, learn and earn simultaneously. As a business, it also enables us to nurture young talent and shape employees for the future and these are the reasons why, year after year, we continue to support skills replenishment.
“A key aspect of our commitment to apprenticeships and training is that we are creating opportunities not just in our hometown of Glasgow but in the communities in which we operate. By partnering with local academic partners, this will ensure these opportunities are sustained for years to come.”
