'Earn and learn' roadshow
Loughborough house-builder William Davis has been running a roadshow to recruit the 2013 intake of its in-house apprenticeship scheme.
HR and training officer Rebecca Jones has been meeting the next generation of aspiring bricklayers, plumbers, electricians and carpenters and joiners, by visiting county schools and colleges.
Following the sessions, eight new apprentices will be picked to start their placements in August.
She said: "We received more than 80 applicants for this year's apprenticeship intake, which is an encouraging sign young people are choosing construction as a viable career.
