First apprentice for firm

Have your say

Amiri Construction has hired its first apprentice in 18-year–old Toby Holdsworth.

In his first two weeks at the Fareham-based construction company, Toby has learnt about site management and gained ‘on the job’ experience on their £6.3m project at Southampton University.

Toby said he wants to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather who was a civil engineer.

He will now embark on a three- year training scheme with the construction company.
