A talented carpenter has secured an apprenticeship at a leading building and maintenance firm as he undertakes a range of commercial projects.

25 year old David Simpson (pictured right) is building himself an exciting future as he completes a Level 2 Site Carpentry apprenticeship at Medway Heating (Bolton) Ltd. This Bolton based business specialises in building and maintenance for residential projects, schools, hospitals and care homes and looks after a range of high profile clients including North Manchester General Hospital.

Stephen Leach (pictured left), Building Contracts Manager at Medway Heating (Bolton) Ltd, is a proud supporter of the Bury College apprenticeship provision and believes strongly in gaining an apprenticeship qualification.

Stephen said: “As a company we always use Bury College to recruit our apprentices and each division of the Medway group has an apprentice. I believe that having a trade is the future and we feel that it is important to give young people opportunities through an apprenticeship. By completing this apprenticeship, David will not only gain a qualification but also be a multi-skilled joiner.”

During his apprenticeship, David, who lives in Radcliffe, is working at a range of different schools, hospitals and residential homes where he is renovating doors and skirting boards and other joinery requirements.

David said: “I am really enjoying my apprenticeship and like working at Medway Heating (Bolton) Ltd because it feels like a family community. My confidence is really improving as my knowledge of the job increases.”
