Apprentices case study

Keith Sserwadda

  • Age: 20
  • Role: Dryline Apprentice
  • Site: Riverlight (St James)

"The best thing for me is picking up more and more skills each day. I would 100 per cent recommend construction to other people and there are loads of opportunities in Nine Elms. It is a good environment to work in with lots of lively people."

Billy Mohan

  • Age: 23
  • Role: Cladding Apprentice
  • Site: Riverlight (St James)

"If you like hands-on, practical work then this is a great role. Since starting on site I have picked up a range of new skills and been involved with other trades like glazing, window fitting and curtain walling. I have also been given extra training like leading edge (working at height), first aid and banksman."

Ben Cook

  • Age: 25
  • Role: Chain person (engineering)
  • Site: Embassy Gardens (Ballymore)

"I got this job through Wandsworth Work Match. I gave the team my CV and they called me into their office to go through it and talk about the type of job I wanted. The first job I went for didn't work out but a couple of days later they got me an interview with Ballymore and I was successful."
