HAMPSHIRE housing association First Wessex has taken on a new batch of apprentices within its property services team.
The firm, which has bases in Portsmouth and Gosport, has taken on its first female plumbing apprentice, Nicola Trotter.
She said: ‘I can’t wait to roll my sleeves up and start learning the ins and outs of the plumbing trade.’
And Rob McFall is the firm’s first apprentice surveyor.
There are eight new apprentices in total.
