National Apprenticeship Week - Johanna Dorey, Plumbing Apprentice | Briggs & Forrester

National Apprenticeship Week - Johanna Dorey, Plumbing Apprentice

Johanna was introduced to Briggs & Forrester Living through a local Work Placement Scheme. She had been trying for some time to get a placement to gain experience in improving her trade skills. Living were able to offer Johanna two weeks work experience on one of their most prestigious projects, One Blackfriars in London, which gave her the opportunity to gain some valuable experience.

It was apparent from the start that Johanna was driven in achieving a career in plumbing. It was easy to identify that she has the dedication, hard work and team ethic that Briggs & Forrester look for in their workforce. Johanna was offered a permanent position, and she is now doing an apprenticeship with Living whilst working towards her advanced certificate in plumbing.

Johanna said, "I recently presented to, and shared my journey with the Moneypenny Foundation, to promote the opportunities that are there in the construction industry. I believe it is important for everyone to understand that the opportunities are out there if you are willing to apply yourself.”
