We have invested in apprenticeships since April 2015, setting up around 65 programmes in various regions and subject areas. Our current apprenticeship programmes range from Level 2 in Plumbing to Level 7 Masters in Business Administration, with a variety of levels and specialisms in between.

 

We have built a successful talent pipeline through our apprenticeships and have even won some awards along the way! 

 

Our competitive apprenticeship salary has allowed us to attract the very best talent in whichever field we are recruiting, and our move to the Real Living Wage in November 2018 means we will no doubt continue to do so. 

 

Meet some of our apprentices and trainees below and hear about why a LiveWest apprenticeship has been such a smart move for them.

Emma Fox

Meet Emma Fox

I was interested in an apprenticeship as I loved the idea of learning whilst you earn. I was excited to carry out my apprenticeship with LiveWest as I have a passion for working in the housing industry. My apprenticeship has allowed me to work with a variety of people with different knowledge and experiences. LiveWest have given me opportunities to work with other teams and gain a large understanding of different departments in the organisation. From training days with solicitors, meetings with mortgage advisers, professional sales training, work shadowing and company away days, my knowledge develops everyday.

My highlights as an apprentice so far include attending Help to Buy events and meeting potential customers, helping to design our show homes and being part of the Innovation Project to improve our customer satisfaction. A constant highlight for me is working with great people, making new friends and seeing happy customers.

Working in sales has taught me a lot. Every day is different, allowing me to learn something new every day. Being part of the sales team offers new opportunities and it is very rewarding to see happy customers at the end of the sales process. I feel very valued by my colleagues, my line manager and LiveWest as an organisation which enables me to have a voice and make a difference.

I would highly recommend an apprenticeship at LiveWest. The opportunities to learn about each department and gaining experience whilst you earn is such a benefit to starting your career. After considering going to University, I was introduced to apprenticeships and what they had to offer. I am so pleased I chose to do an apprenticeship, it has allowed me to have an insight into the housing industry and has lead me to find what I would like to do as a career.
