2017 Apprentice of the Year Awards

We are delighted to announce that Martynas Jakomas, our Apprentice Bricklayer, won the Merit Award at the 2017 Apprentice of the Year Awards. The event was held at the Oxford Thames Hotel, Sandford on Thames, and was very well attended.

Martynas (pictured with his award) was one of three prize winners out of eighteen nominations of apprentices from numerous trades, so this is an excellent achievement. Martynas’ family attended the award ceremony and were very proud of their son’s achievement.

Comments from the review panel:

“A truly pleasant individual with strong family values and a welcoming disposition. Eager to ‘show-off’ his work with immense pride. Gave the impression that despite his primary trade, he is more than happy to learn new things that are over and above what a project may require. In a team situation on a site, there are times when flexibility comes to the fore; this person would never hold back to help wherever he could. A worthy winner.”
