Wilde Celebrates National Apprentice Week

This National Apprenticeship Week, we would like to welcome our newest apprentice in the rail and highway structures team, Will Lunt, who will be assisting with work for multiple clients including local authorities, Network Rail, and contractors.

Will joins Wilde after obtaining A-Levels in Maths, Chemistry and Physics at North Chadderton Secondary School and Sixth Form in Oldham. Outside of engineering, Will is very musical and plays drums and keyboard to a decent level.

When asked about his experience so far, Will said: “My first few weeks at Wilde have been very intriguing. I’ve met a lot of great people who are always willing to help me when I don’t understand. I also have had new experiences, for instance, sitting in my first real meeting and accustoming to the office workspace. Overall, it has been an enjoyable and valuable learning experience so far and I look forward to continuing into the future.”

National Apprenticeship Week is an annual event that takes place in the UK to celebrate and promote the benefits of apprenticeships. During this week, businesses and organizations across the country showcase their apprentices and the valuable contributions they make to their companies.

Apprenticeships not only benefit individuals but also bring social value to communities by providing pathways to skilled careers and contributing to the local economy. Companies like Wilde Consultants have a responsibility to give back to the communities where we operate, and apprenticeships provide a unique opportunity to do so. By offering on-the-job training and real-world experience to the next generation of workers, we are investing in the future of our local workforce and supporting the development of the skills needed to drive economic growth. Additionally, companies can also give back to their communities by partnering with schools, offering internships to students, and supporting initiatives that promote skills development and career readiness. In this way, apprenticeships become a means of creating positive change and building stronger, more resilient communities.

Wilde’s apprenticeship vacancies are advertised on the Government Apprenticeship service. For more information about working at Wilde, visit our ‘Join our family’ tab.
