A Hilton 18-year-old has been named best apprentice in the East Midlands by a local housebuilder.
Kyran Coates, based at Langely Country Park, in Derby, scooped the Redrow Homes East Midlands’ Apprentice of the Year title, thanks to his passion for the industry and strong work ethic.
Kyran joined Redrow Homes East Midlands as an apprentice joiner a year ago. Before starting his apprenticeship, he worked as a landscape gardener, but quickly realised his true calling lay in the housebuilding industry after working alongside his father’s friends in the construction industry at weekends.
A quick learner, Kyran particularly enjoys building stud walls, and is looking forward to continuing to broaden his skill set. Kyran believes hard work and good communication skills are key to becoming a good apprentice; both of these qualities contributed to his nomination.
His interest in the housebuilding industry, and in particular in Redrow Homes, runs in the family, as his father also works for the housebuilder as a site manager. Passionate about his job, Kyran is keen to build his career in the industry, and can see himself working for Redrow Homes for years to come.
Kyran said: “I’m thrilled to have been named best apprentice in the East Midlands. Building a home from scratch and putting up the very first walls is an amazing feeling, and the team here has been nothing but supportive.
“Being an apprentice for Redrow Homes has been a great learning experience, and I would advise anyone to apply. They have provided me with all the tools and support I need to progress, and I look forward to continuing to learn new skills and build my career here at Redrow Homes.”
Martyn Pask, Regional Director for Redrow East Midlands, said: “We are all incredibly proud of Kyran’s achievements – he is a huge asset to the our team. Success stories like his are the reason why we are committed to nurturing apprentices here at Redrow Homes, and we look forward to watching him grow in his career. Congratulations Kyran!”
