Construction giant appoints five new apprentices to work on Lincoln Eastern Bypass

Construction giant Carillion has hired five new apprentices in Lincolnshire who will be taking their first steps towards a career in engineering by becoming apprentice Civil Engineering Technicians.

The five were selected from dozens of applicants and will now gain experience by working on Lincoln’s Eastern Bypass project.

The apprentices are:

  • Nicholas Scott, 17, from Thorpe on the Hill
  • Eloise Hesnan, 17, from Bracebridge Heath
  • Alex Luff, 18, from Grimsby
  • Troy Milstad, 16, from Welton
  • Lewis Mount, 17, from Birchwood

Councllor Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways, said: “It’s great knowing that the next generation of civil engineers will be working on a project as important as the Lincoln Eastern Bypass.

“Because the project is so large, there will be plenty of learning opportunities for these local young people to sink their teeth into so that they walk away from this experience with the knowledge necessary to carry their new careers forward.”

Lee Tinkler, Project Director from Carillion, added: “Our scheme specific apprenticeships were established in 2013 and have proven to be a fantastic success.

“The Lincoln scheme will include significant engineering requirements to construct over rail bridges, viaducts over watercourses, footbridges, earthworks, drainage and surfacing operations.”

One of the apprentices, Alex Luff said: “This opportunity is life-changing.

“The job role that I am training for is a career for life.

“There are also various opportunities in the construction sector which, once I have completed my apprenticeship and any additional training, I can move on to train and develop in.”
