Building Futures


CCG (Scotland) announce apprentice intake for 2024.

With a commitment to staying at the forefront of evolving construction methods and technologies, CCG is dedicated to replenishing and upskilling its workforce, marking a significant step towards a sustainable future and the transition to net zero.

In celebration of Scottish Apprenticeship Week, which took place 04/03-08/03, CCG is seizing the opportunity to spotlight the broader need for skills replenishment in the construction sector, particularly with ambitious housebuilding and sustainability targets.

The new apprentices will be trained in bricklaying, joinery, plumbing, heating engineering and electrical work, with up to 16 new entrants aged 16 and above joining CCG’s main construction division and subsidiary companies within their group umbrella in August.

The new apprentices will be from across the Central Belt and will undertake a four-year, industry-recognised programme in partnership with the country’s leading colleges.

David Wylie, Managing Director of CCG, said:

“Our apprentice intake is an annual commitment for CCG and a significant milestone as we continue to invest in the future of construction.  By providing opportunities for apprentices to learn and develop, we are not only addressing the skills shortage in the industry, but also ensuring that our company remains at the forefront of innovation and progress.”

“This initiative supports our commitment to sustainability and innovation and aligns with our broader themes for our 50th anniversary year.”

Over the past 50 years, CCG has been steadfast in its commitment to youth employment, recognising the importance of investing in the next generation of skilled workers.

Additionally, CCG aims to celebrate its people, highlighting the talents and expertise within the organisation.

Celebrating Women in Construction Week, CCG highlights opportunities available to women in the industry.

Aimee Kelsey, Trainee Health and Safety Advisor, is one of 79 women and twelve trainees employed across the group.

She entered the construction sector as an apprentice tiler and moved to CCG in 2023.

Aimee commented:

“I never thought about a career in construction until my mum encouraged me to look into it as I liked DIY and learning how to do more construction-type work.  Tiling was a good fit as it allowed me to express my creativity. I studied at City of Glasgow College, Women in Construction & SCQF Level 3 Wall and Floor Tiling.

“Moving to CCG and securing a health and safety traineeship is a great next step for my career.  I find it really interesting and still get to spend a lot of time on-site with site managers to make our sites as safe as possible for the team.

“I’m hoping to continue to a Health and Safety Adviser role once the traineeship is finished and encourage any girls thinking of a career in construction to go for it.”
