Year on year 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 employees, 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 in regards to training, and for the last twenty years we have averaged two Apprentices and one Management Trainee per year. This September we took on one Bricklaying Apprentice and Two Management Trainees. Lewis Wasley, 19 and Oliver Long, 18 will go down the route of a Management Trainee, the programme involves hands on experience and learning, supported by college-based study. Both Lewis and Oliver have the same goal, to look after and manage their own sites and become a Site Manager. Lewis said:

“Following a period of work experience whilst studying for my GCSE’s I decided that the Apprenticeship route would be the most beneficial for me, I knew I wanted to go into the construction industry and I loved the idea of gaining experience and a qualification at the same time”
