Our apprentices.

If you are looking to start a career in construction, our Apprenticeships scheme is an excellent choice.

Now in its 17th year, the programme continues to unlock the door to jobs across the construction and property development industry and allows young people to earn while they learn.

Our Apprentices attend both practical and theory-based training sessions, focussing on honing their skills in a variety of subjects, including street works, drainage, excavations, concreting, paving, kerbing, plant and machinery.

The modules undertaken ultimately result in nationally recognised awards and qualifications, while giving participants a solid grounding in high-quality and safe construction practices.

Many Anderson Apprentices go on to use these qualifications as they work their way through our business, taking on a variety of roles.

We usually open our application process for Apprenticeships in April, with applications reviewed in May and placements beginning in September.

To register your interest, please send your CV and a covering letter to apprentices@andersongroup.co.uk.
