Liam Jones has become the latest apprentice to join the expanding joinery team at Bicton Business Park, Shrewsbury.

Liam’s career began as a painter and decorator but he worked as a kitchen fitter before finding his passion for joinery as he watched bespoke, made-to-measure kitchens being crafted in the workshop.

Returning to education, Liam has spent his first-year learning principles of construction with an overview of using power tools and machinery proficiently, as well as basic woodworking skills.

Liam said: “Now I’m in my second year, I’m really developing my skills, working on more complex projects including doors, staircases and tables. I am looking forward to completing my apprenticeship to become a qualified Joiner."

Morris Property Construction Manager Steve Flavell added: “Liam is a real asset to the team assisting them with their busy workload and helping on site fitting bespoke windows and doors for clients.

"There’s a real skills gap in the construction sector so it’s vital we support and inspire young people to choose a career within the sector and open opportunities for the future, Liam takes our number of current apprentice bench joiners to three.”
