The upturn in the property market which has seen house prices steadily rise over the past few months is having positive effects across the housing industry.
For school leavers Frazer Chadwick and Warren Smith, the continuing market recovery is particular reason to celebrate, as they have just been taken on as apprentices by Taylor Wimpey East Midlands.
With demand for brand new homes in the region continuing to gather pace, we are keen to ensure it has the resources in place to meet the requirements of property-seekers.
And by joining the Taylor Wimpey team at an early age, 18-year-old Frazer, from Leicester, and 17-year-old Warren, from Syston, can gain the skills and expertise to develop successful careers in the industry while helping to make sure the area’s need for high-quality housing is fulfilled in the years to come.
Steve Farmer, Managing Director of Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, says: “We’re delighted to welcome Frazer and Warren to our highly-experienced construction team as an investment in the future of our company and the housing needs of the East Midlands people.
“Industry analysts have been telling us for months that confidence is returning to the property market, and there can be no clearer evidence that this is the case than the need to recruit more workers and create new jobs.”
