If you are looking to start a career in construction, our Apprenticeships scheme is an excellent choice.

Now in its 20th year, the programme continues to unlock the door to jobs across the construction and property development industry and allows young people to earn while they learn.

Our Apprentices attend both practical and theory-based training sessions, focussing on honing their skills in a variety of subjects, including street works, drainage, excavations, concreting, paving, kerbing, plant and machinery.

The modules undertaken ultimately result in nationally recognised awards and qualifications, while giving participants a solid grounding in high-quality and safe construction practices.

Many Anderson Apprentices go on to use these qualifications as they work their way through our business, taking on a variety of roles.

We usually open our application process for Apprenticeships in April, with applications reviewed in May and placements beginning in September.

To register your interest, please send your CV and a covering letter to apprentices@andersongroup.co.uk.

Seven apprentices sign in on site

A new cohort of groundworkers have joined M. Anderson Construction sites this quarter.

The team of seven are the new recruits to the Anderson Apprenticeship Scheme which is in its 20th year.

Training Manager Steve Hammond said: “We have a long history of helping people to develop career paths from the ground up and are thrilled to welcome some new fresh faces to our sites this year.
Our apprenticeship scheme has grown from strength to strength, and we enjoy seeing all our new starters flourish as they build on their skills and training throughout the programme.”

“I did some work experience with the company which led to me applying for this apprenticeship. I am excited about the hands-on experience I am going to get alongside my qualifications.”

Kai Barham-Yendell, 16, from Witham, has joined the team at Silver End.

“On this apprenticeship scheme you get paid more than the competitors which is a bonus. I wanted a hands-on job, and this will be perfect.”

Kai Williams, 16, from Chelmsford, is now based at the Mulberries site in Witham.

“Apprenticeships are attractive to people my age because they allow you to earn while you learn. I’m looking forward to learning how to operate machinery.”

Alfie Talbot, 17, from Southend on Sea, is training at Rochford.

“I’m looking forward to being able to pay my mum rent. It’s great to have a job that helps you develop your skills while getting paid.”

Kyle Talbot, 17, from Southend on Sea, is joining Alfie on the Rochford site.

“Construction runs in my family, and I am really looking forward to working my way up the career ladder here while achieving qualifications and making some money.”

Benji Chatter, 16, from Maldon, has joined the team of groundworkers at the Maldon Crest development.

“It’s exciting to be
starting my career with a promising company and earning while learning.”

Isaac Brewer, 16, from Chelmsford, is working with the team at Heybridge.

“The benefits of an apprenticeship are to learn and make money at the same time and I wanted a career in the construction industry, so this is a great place to start that journey.”

Kutay Cerikci, 16, also from Chelmsford, is now based in Maldon.
