CCG is a modern and progressive contractor and we understand the importance of providing a solid foundation for young people in choosing a career in construction.
One of the main ways we do this is through our annual commitment to provide trade and modern apprenticeship programmes for young people aged between 16 and 21. Take on the tools by undertaking an industry-recognised, 4-year programme in bricklaying, joinery, floor-laying and plumbing or why not become an electrician or heating engineer? CCG’s divisional breadth offers a variety of options that are each undertaken within a hugely innovative and exciting applied-learning environment all whilst earning a wage.
Our modern apprenticeship roles in administration also offer direct routes to further career development in areas of accounting and buying with recent graduates going on to become full-time employees at our Cambuslang HQ
We work with some of Scotland’s leading colleges whilst our reach-out ‘Building Futures’ programme with Developing Young Workforce (DYW) and our work with Skills Development Scotland ensure that we are always engaged with young people who seek a pathway to the construction industry.
Across our Group, we currently employ 43 young people in an apprenticeship role with a strong percentage of graduates retained as part of our direct staff every year and this year, we will be welcoming a further 19 trade apprentices across our group this August.
It is important to know that an apprenticeship with CCG is just the beginning – some of our very own senior managers and directors started out their careers as an apprentice so who knows where your career can go! With CCG, we will help build your future.
