A 27 year old award-winning apprentice from Norwich is celebrating after landing a permanent job with Tarmac, the construction solutions company delivering highways services on behalf of Norfolk County Council.
Krystyan Wells has just graduated from a Highways Maintenance and Civil Engineering Technologies Apprenticeship with the TrAC Shared Apprenticeship Scheme which he began in April 2013 after seeing the vacancy advertised on the National Apprenticeship (NAS) website. He has been on a placement with Tarmac since April 2014, becoming a key member of the highways team working on a variety of schemes including Norwich cycle improvement schemes, footpath improvements, road widening schemes and drainage on major highway improvements.
Commenting on the appointment, Alistair McBeath, Norfolk Services Director at Tarmac, said: “We want to inspire young people to join our team and pursue successful careers within the highways and construction industry, whilst also helping to deliver jobs in Norfolk and create a long term skills legacy for the region.
“We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Krystyan to the team on a permanent basis, and I’d like to congratulate him on the successful completion of his apprenticeship. He’s shown immense determination and dedication since joining us, and I know he’s going to continue to build a very successful career.”
Krystyan said: “I really enjoyed the wide variety of work I was able to carry out during my apprenticeship and it’s great that all the hard work has paid off. I look forward to progressing my career within Tarmac.”
Tarmac is currently working with seven young apprentices from across the county who are receiving expert technical on-site training in their chosen discipline in addition to undertaking vocational training.
