PBS has continued its investment in the next generation by welcoming new apprentice James Stamp to the company.
James initially came to PBS from the Construction Skills Village for a work experience placement where he joined the site team currently working on the restoration of the historic South Cliff Gardens in Scarborough.
After making a really positive impression during his placement, James was offered a groundworks apprenticeship with the company. He will now work towards his Level 2 Groundworks qualification whilst also learning his trade on site.
Glenn Smurthwaite, Managing Director at PBS, said:
“It’s great to have James on board. When he came to us on work experience, everyone was hugely impressed by his attitude, work ethic and willingness to learn. We felt that during that time he earned the right to be given an opportunity and were more than happy to offer that.
“As a company we’re always keen to give the next generation a chance to get started in their career and I’m sure James will continue to thrive now he’s on board full time. I’d also like to thank the Scarborough Skills Village as they recommended James for work experience.
“We have a very good relationship with them and hopefully will be able to continue to work together going forward.”
Jenna Redmond, Employer Engagement Officer at the Scarborough Skills Village, added:
“It’s fantastic to see James going from strength to strength. I’ve been working with James over the past few months and seeing him out on site working with PBS is very rewarding. James has really come out of his shell, is working hard and has settled in great with the team at PBS.”
