Meet Hisham, Team Leader

Why did you choose an apprenticeship?
I chose an apprenticeship for the opportunity to build on my knowledge and skills base within the construction industry.

Why the construction industry?
I have been working in the construction industry for several years now and I have to say I love working in this industry! Working in the construction industry is highly rewarding as you can see your hard work and dedication through the completion of each stage of the project.

What are the benefits?
My apprenticeship supports my development in the industry which will lead to a qualification, additional experience and opportunities to develop my career further.

Why would you recommend it to others?
If you want a change in career or to experience a different industry, consider an apprentice, as it can change your life. An apprenticeship helps you to enhance job skills through hands on experience and builds on your knowledge to adopt new skills.

A summary of a typical day in the life of an apprentice
Working hard across the site taking on the usual day-to-day tasks including daily briefings, hoist pre-start inspections, while lending a hand to my team members when needed. I’m doing my best to juggle work, course work, assignments, and my family life to better my future. It’s hard work but I can see the efforts I put in are starting to pay off as my knowledge and confidence expands.
