Having a keen interest in design and construction, Blaine joined Taylor Wimpey in September 2022. He said: "I always knew that I wanted to work within the industry. When applying for jobs and speaking to different organisations, I was drawn to Taylor Wimpey for a number of reasons, especially as we are one of the largest construction organisations in the UK and the working environment is really varied."
Now in the second year of his apprenticeship, Blaine has acquired a wide array of vital skills. Blaine shares: "So far I feel like I’ve really improved a variety of essential life skills, such as communication and the ability to work as part of a large team, as well as key knowledge of my job and how to progress throughout my career.”
Reflecting on his journey as an apprentice, Blaine would encourage those starting out in the industry to "try your best to make good impressions, get stuck in with as many people and as many tasks as possible, and don't be afraid to ask for help!"
Looking ahead, Blaine explains: "I want to keep improving my skills, building my network, and hopefully one day I’ll be a Director in Taylor Wimpey."
