I am a trainee assistant manager for Redrow Homes NW.

I provide help for the site manager on a day-to-day basis and perform a variety of tasks, such as ordering materials to site or organising trades. While doing this I am gaining on-site experience and learning as I go.

I like how I am continually learning on the job, such as learning how to use the company computer system and how to manage a building site.

While working in construction I have been fortunate enough to be invited to 10 Downing Street to meet the Prime Minister after winning a national apprentice award. If you are willing enough to put the effort in, you will be rewarded.
