Liam West - Groundworker

Liam, 22, joined Lindum in September 2015 as an Apprentice Groundworker and is currently based with the Lindum Homes division.

“After successfully completing a full time course at college and qualifying with an HNC in Mechanical Engineering I found it difficult to get a job as I had not got the practical experience employers were looking for so, after reviewing my options, I applied for one of the apprenticeships advertised by Lindum, choosing Groundwork. I was fortunate to be offered the position and am now enjoying on the job training as well as working towards gaining my qualifications” explained Liam.

As a groundworker, Liam and his team interpret plans and drawings to prepare areas of work before constructing concrete foundations, roads, pavements and driveways. Also, as part of his job, Liam has an understanding of site services and helps to coordinate the laying of drains, sewers and utility cables.

“There is a lot more to being a groundworker than digging holes and the experienced team I work are happy to share their experience and help me understand the more technical elements, as well as how to solve some of the problems which arise” said Liam.

 

"As I continue with my apprenticeship with Lindum I am looking forward to gaining more experience on a wide range of construction projects thanks to the size of company and the way in which they plan their apprenticeship programme so it is a win win opportunity for me."
