The importance of training and developing a skilled workforce

We recognise the importance of training and developing a skilled workforce for the future and believe that by investing in apprentices we will continue to be recognised as a company that provides work of the highest quality. We are actively involved in the development and promotion of traditional crafts to ensure that we have a skilled workforce for the next generation.


PAYE Apprenticeships are ideal for those looking to gain on the job experience and our Craft Apprentices are given the opportunity to develop their stonemasonry skills by working on some of the most prestigious buildings and monuments in the UK
