Full time, Onsite
For over two decades Barr Group has had the privilege of training countless amazing apprentices, who have gone on to become skilled tradespeople. Many have become apprentice mentors themselves, as well as the site managers of our organisation today. Barr Group is first and foremost about people, and our apprenticeship scheme plays a fundamental role; passing the values of attention to detail, doing things differently and caring for our environment, which are embodied by employees across the organisation. For more information about the Barr Group apprenticeship scheme, please get in touch with Charlie Barr, Training & Apprenticeships Coordinator.
