My Journey
Student to Apprentice
This is Josh, who was recently a College student, just like you.
In September 2020, Josh joined Morgan Sindall as an Apprentice Site
Manager and is currently doing his Site Management rotation at the
Norwich Castle Museum project under the Senior Project Manager.
Josh, commenting on his journey with Morgan Sindall:
“I heard of Morgan Sindall whilst studying for my BTEC in
Construction at the College of West Anglia as they had projects in
the West Norfolk region. I had work experience with Lovell, which is
part of the Morgan Sindall Group, so I was aware of Morgan Sindall,
but was not fully introduced to the company until I applied for the
graduate program and was o ered a place as an apprentice.
I had wanted to join the industry since the age of about 14. I have
always been interested in the industry as I have many family
members who are involved in construction and STEM roles. I went
into college knowing I wanted to do construction, but didn’t know
exactly what I wanted to apply for. I always enjoyed being on site
and wanted to challenge myself.
