Eight young people have joined Lovell London from university for a two-year programme of training as apprentice site managers.
Each one will spend most of their time on site working directly with the construction teams at a number of developments in the capital, with regular off-site learning to complement the practical skills they pick up ‘on the job’.
One of the new members of the team is 24-year-old Sam Cunningham, 24, who is entering construction for a career after studying economics at Fordham University and is encouraged by the practical nature of the new homes industry: “Construction interests me as it has a clear purpose in providing a necessity; there’s real satisfaction in being a part of the building process. I look forward to mastering site management skills and learning about property development from start to finish.”
Another is Guisy Adekunbi, 21-years old and taking her degree in construction project management at Aston University to its next logical step. She says: “I’ve got a strong interest in design and building construction, especially regeneration, so I’m keen to understand more about the different stages of a development.”
Mike Maxwell, operations director at Lovell, says of the career opportunities the graduate scheme provides: “Lovell is committed to recruiting bright, motivated graduates with the potential to become the future leaders of its business and offers opportunities in specific areas, such as site management and quantity surveying.
