Lloyd, Gas Engineer.

Achieving an Apprenticeship at Jigsaw Homes was truly a career defining moment for me.

Before joining I was constantly bouncing from job to job mostly doing work on zero hour contacts.  

Jigsaw offered me a 4 year contract working daytime hours which gave my personal life a good balance as I previously worked nights.  

From the first day I joined I was made to feel welcome by all my colleagues many of whom had completed apprenticeships themselves with the company.  

I found once my team got to know me and realized I was serious about learning they were more than happy to answer any questions to help me learn and no question was ever a silly question.  

I would say my highlight was working on the Miles Platting boiler program with the Gas Installation Team where we replaced all of the boilers on the estate.  

During my apprenticeship I was always set achievable challenges to help build my confidence and skill set.  

Now that my apprenticeship is completed I now work as a Gas Engineer doing responsive repairs where no day is ever the same.  

It's been an intense journey but one I'm most definitely glad I've taken.
