“As a girl at a very academically focused school, a career in construction was perhaps an unusual choice - but I’m loving it and I’ve no regrets. I have come across lots of women during my training with McCarthy Stone, who are hugely successful within the field. I’m really enjoying my apprenticeship and would encourage other girls to consider construction as a worthwhile career. There are so many diverse roles that you can do and so much opportunity to build on these skills and qualifications.” - Rosie Coyle, Construction Apprentice

McCarthy Stone's Apprentice Programme creates an environment which fosters the conditions for all colleagues to give their best each day. You will have opportunities to help you to develop, for your own benefit and for the benefit of McCarthy Stone. You will work in an environment where you can fulfil your personal potential, with the support you need to put yourself into a learning mode and the experience and challenges to help you grow. Including regular reviews with your training provider, line manager and workplace mentor, in addition to wrap-around support from the Early Careers Lead. You'll join a team of apprentices across the country developing and supporting each other. · One-day each week will be dedicated entirely to lectures and studying for your Apprenticeship qualification.

You'll be encouraged to take ownership and responsibility and they challenge the status quo and empower everyone to share ideas – if you think there's a better way of doing things, McCarthy Stone will be all ears.

"Starting an apprenticeship with McCarthy Stone has been the best option for me as the practical work experience alongside the HNC is going to improve my employability and career progression for the future. Coming into my role I didn't have much experience in construction or the built environment, so the support of my team has really helped – everyone is so approachable and happy to help, and it’s great having other apprentices in business as it allows you to talk among each other and ask questions." - James Vernon (Commercial Apprentice)
