Pennine Housing 2000 has expended its apprenticeship ranks by employing three new youngsters from the Calderdale area.

Apprentice joiner Josh Mills and business apprentices Robyn Saltonstall and Hayley Quick have gained apprenticeships with the housing association, which is based at Bull Green.

Janette Pearce, Head of Pennine Housing 2000, said: “Apprenticeships are a really important element of our strategy on workforce growth.

“Our organisation is committed to offering work opportunities to unemployed young people, particularly those who are living in the local communities that we serve.

Apprentice joiner Josh said: “This opportunity means everything to me.

”To be working with Pennine Housing, being paid a salary, learning new skills and gaining a qualification in something I really enjoy, is fantastic and has given me a real boost.”

Business apprentice Robyn said: “I am totally enjoying coming to work, everyone is so friendly and supportive.

“I feel lucky to be part of such a great team”.

Christine Eccles, senior skills and enterprise officer said “We are so pleased to have Hayley as part of our learning and development team.

“She has settled in really well and is working towards a NVQ level 2 qualification whilst carrying out her duties at our training centre.

“We wish all three of our new apprentices good luck in their new roles.”
