Lovell welcomes new trainees due to region’s growth
Lovell has recently appointed a handful of new trainees and apprentices to its Midlands region based in Quinton, as it continues to meet demand for new homes in the area.
2019 was a successful year for Lovell in the Midlands, with over 300 homes built across the region and a current forward order book and regeneration and development pipeline at £225 million.
The company is currently building homes in Staffordshire, Shropshire and the West Midlands.
Lovell has welcomed three new trade apprentices to its upcoming Saints Quarter development in Wolverhampton; Ryan Cresswell, 17; Devante Porteous-Gordon, 18; and Conor Watts, 17.
Conor, from Halesowen, is currently studying one day per week towards a Level 2 Carpentry course at Walsall College, whilst Ryan, from Wolverhampton, and Devante, from West Brom, are both working towards a Level 2 qualification in Bricklaying also at Walsall College.
Kelly Truman, regional training manager at Lovell, said: “I’m really impressed at how well the new members to our team have settled in and I hope that they all go on to have successful careers within the company, just as many of their colleagues have gone on to do.”
Stuart Penn, regional managing director at Lovell, said: “It’s very important to Lovell to invest in developing raw talent and that’s why we’re very keen on funding an education for our trainees and apprentices. We also value the importance of having a team of diverse and talented individuals and love being able to give young people the opportunity to flourish within the industry.”
