Apprentice Jordan carves out an amazing career in joinery
Apprenticeships put future generations at the centre of the joinery industry which is essential for its growth and survival.
We’re proud to be supporting National Apprenticeship week and this year’s theme which is ‘Skills for Life’.
Joinery plays a vital role in various sectors, contributing to the construction of buildings, the creation of staircases and bespoke pieces to enhance interior spaces.
The skills a young person learns in this sector allow for a long and flourishing career in joinery, but Brookeswood’s very own apprentice Jordan Purcell has been developing those skills long before he started working with us. From the moment he stepped into his Grandad’s workshop as a four-year-old child, he knew he wanted to be a joiner.
Learning New Skills
The 17-year-old is our Joinery Apprentice and he’s responsible for carrying out fittings and installations on site, as well as working with the team in the workshop.
He hasn’t hesitated to get stuck into the wide variety of duties involved with his role, as he tackles everything with immense enthusiasm, a hard-working ethic, and an excellent skill set.
Apprenticeships teach individuals how to adapt to changes in the industry, learn new technologies and skills, while staying relevant in dynamic environments and we’re excited to watch Jordan as he progresses along this journey.
He’s quickly becoming a fantastic asset to the team
Director Sue Brookes said:
“Jordan might have only been with us for three months, but he’s quickly become an integral part of the team. He’s incredibly hard working, is a quick learner and is never afraid to go the extra mile. He’s quickly become a real asset to Brookeswood and has an incredibly bright future ahead of him.”
Having a talented and skilled workforce is vital for our growth as a business. We work with architects, property developers, interior designers and homeowners to create beautiful timber windows, staircases, doors and bespoke items, enhancing homes and their interiors.”
