Halton Housing Joiner Apprentice

Meet Rhys our Joinery Apprentice

8th February 2021

2 minutes


Rhys, 17, from Runcorn is not new to joinery having completed his level 1 in joinery at Riverside College. Rhys is gaining experience on the job and applying skills and knowledge learnt at college and putting them into practice. He started his 2-year apprenticeship in September 2020 and is hopeful he will be offered a full-time joinery post when he completes his apprenticeship. 

Why did you choose an apprenticeship with Halton Housing? 

“I knew Halton Housing as it’s a local company with a good reputation and I felt that they would be able to support me through my apprenticeship, learning a wide range of skills and interacting with lots of different people so developing my communication skills. 

Halton housing is a company that offers lots of benefits and I feel that I could have a very good career with them.” 

Day in the life of … Rhys  – Apprentice Joiner

Rhys’s role involves visiting residents’ homes and carrying out repairs and assessments for upcoming work. Here’s a taste of what he does on a daily basis: 

“My typical day starts just after 8am, when I check my emails. I get picked up by Matt my mentor and then my day can vary day to day depending on what jobs are allocated to us, but they would typically include repairing windows, fixing doors, fitting handrails/grab rails, fitting skirting boards, and any other repair jobs that need doing. Finish time is 4.30am”.
