Here at SO Modular, we were proud to see apprentice Joe Munane recognised at the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group’s annual awards, held at the Village Hotel, Swansea, in July.
The ceremony is designed to support and recognise the achievements of new entrants, apprentices and future talent within the construction industry in the South Wales region.
Swansea Bay Construction Support Group’s overall objective is to promote the construction industry’s image and showcase the benefits of considering the construction industry as a career path, and what skills individuals can gain from this profession.
It works closely with Cyfle Building Skills, an organisation that manages a shared apprenticeship scheme in Southwest Wales for the construction industry. Some 90% of apprentices who complete the three years with Cyfle Building Skills secure full-time employment in their chosen trade.
Charlotte Hale, Operations Director at SO Modular, said: “We are delighted to hear that one of our fantastic apprentices has been recognised as a finalist for this prestigious award, and would like to formally congratulate Joe on his work with us. It has been an honour to watch his journey as an apprentice, and at SO Modular we really value his dedication and work ethic. We look forward to continuing to support Joe and celebrating all his successes within the construction industry in the future. Congratulations!”
Joe Munane said: “I have always wanted to work in the construction industry since leaving school and following the apprenticeship route helped me to do so. Currently, I am the lead designer for four live sites, and I have been given the responsibility to run those independently. When I finish my apprenticeship, I’d love to stay in the same role and keep gaining as much experience as possible until I’m ready to take the next step.”
