    Meet Will – The Perfect Carpentry Apprentice!

    GetAhead - Feb 17 th, 2016

    Calling all Sutton-based carpenters! Employ Will before your competitor does….

    Will Davis 3

    Will Davis knows his hard woods from his soft woods, and he knows how to kick start his career without delay – via an apprenticeship! Who will be quickest to snap up this local lad?

    How does an apprenticeship work for you, and the apprentice?

    Will has already been accepted onto a Level 2 intermediate carpentry course at Nescot College.  He would spend part of each month learning at college and the rest on the job with you.  All you’d need to do is give Will access to as much hands-on carpentry experience as you can and sign off his paperwork to confirm he has completed a range of tasks.  It really is super simple, and it won’t be like being back at school yourself – we promise! More information can be found here:

    What Will has to say…..about Will (and we whole-heartedly agree with)

    I am a punctual, motivated worker. My attendance demonstrates this as in both school and college it was around 98%. Furthermore, I am always willing to take on any task; and ensure that the task at hand is done to the highest standard.

    I am a great team worker who interacts well with colleagues. Within school and college, I was frequently involved in successful teamwork activities. I have always enjoyed working with new groups of people whether they are older or younger than me. As well as this, I can work independently and use my own initiative to get the task done. I can meet strict deadlines and I work well under pressure to ensure that the job is done by the deadline. I have demonstrated this whilst at college by meeting all my deadlines and completing work to a very high standard within the timescale.

    During both school and college, I took resistant materials as well as product design. I am able to draw basic technical drawings in both isometric as well as orthographic. I also have Health & Safety knowledge of various different machines used for woodwork.

    I have experience of customer service work; I successfully completed 2 weeks work experience whilst at Sainsburys during yr11 as well as a seasonal post at Next in December 2015.

    What Will is into…

    I have an interest in computers, I enjoy learning about how they work and also the variety of tasks you can carry out with them. Whilst I was at college, I often used CAD to design products which would then be cut out using CAM.

    I also enjoy cycling. I would often cycle to box hill to stay healthy and get me outdoors. I initially started cycling as something to do, but now I often cycle to stay fit as I find that gyms do not really appeal to me.
