Why join IDH as an apprentice?

Typically, our apprentice will progress into a design role in temporary works, formwork, scaffolding or permanent works design. There will also be opportunity to progress into business development and management.

In the words of Anthony Kenmare, Director of IDH North:

“It’s getting harder and harder to find and retain good engineering staff. A good long-term solution is to ‘grow our own’ and secure the best local new talent. My past experiences have shown that apprentices that have developed through a business like IDH behave in a professional manner, learn the skills required to achieve their objectives and consequently have a personal ‘buy in’ to the business. We future-proof our industry by bringing new people into a line of work they may not have considered. Overall, I believe that bringing in apprenticeships gives IDH improved productivity, better quality of service and higher staff morale.”
