Name: Jared Atkins
Position: Junior Site Engineer
Held Role Since: August 2018
Currently studying: HND Apprenticeship in Construction and the Built Environment on the Civil Engineering Pathway

Describe Your Role: It was challenging to walk on to an established site with no construction knowledge, but the opportunity for me to learn about engineering practices on varied schemes – from tall residential buildings to huge industrial warehouses – has been there for the taking. I’ve been able to safely and efficiently implement what I’ve learned in the classroom myself, not just watch others, and I’ve been given the responsibility to carry out tasks on my own. For example, I use GPS equipment to set out foundations and kerbing, calculate the correct amounts of cubed concrete required, analyse drawings and manipulate CAD.

Advice for people wanting to join Winvic? Don’t worry if you’re nervous, everyone is when they start. Every day I have become more confident within my job and I’ve learned to find the correct balance between my college work and my site role. The company is very supportive and speaking to people at all levels it is clear that Winvic rewards those who work hard and show promise.

Name: Maddie Wood
Position: Trainee Site Engineer
Held Role Since: September 2021
Currently studying: Level 4 HNC Site Engineering Technician Apprenticeship

Describe Your Role: During my first year I have learnt so much, for example, the precise engineering of placing bolt boxes in the right locations and at the right heights and how to remove the runs and slab with a concrete cutter. Working on such a large project has exposed me to many different tasks and being able to visualise tasks and ask the experts has helped me with my course. It’s been really great to go on courses too, such as setting out, Cat and Genny, SMSTS and First Aid and I’ve gained my CSCS card.

Advice for people wanting to join Winvic? If you’re aiming for a hands-on or practical role, like construction engineering, then an apprenticeship seems the best way to learn quickly and correctly to me. I think it’s important to find the right company for you though, and maybe don’t just jump at the first apprenticeship placement offer. You’re working four days out of five, so you’ve got to enjoy your surroundings, team and feel supported – this is definitely what I feel at Winvic, everyone just wants tohelp you to get better and better.

Name: Georgina Johnson
Position: Junior IT Support
Held Role Since: February 2022
Currently studying: Level 3 IT Solutions Technician Apprenticeship

Describe Your Role: Day-to-day, the main task I fulfil is using our IT support ticketing system to respond to colleagues who were having issues with either their laptop, tablet or phone. For example, someone might have a problem installing software, I also ensure the set-up is right on the back end, so ensure the right people are on the right email groups. I answer queries coming in on phone calls a lot, and although this was very daunting at first, Winvic has
really supported me and as time has gone on, I’ve gained more confidence.

Advice for people wanting to join Winvic? Don’t worry if you’re nervous, I was when I started because it’s my first full-time job after leaving Sixth Form and I had no prior knowledge of how IT support works in practice. However, everyone was so kind and welcomed me, and I became comfortable very quickly. Be prepared to be challenged at Winvic and if you have the right attitude to step up, you’ll love it here – I’m glad I’m doing my IT apprenticeship here.
