I knew I didn’t want to be sat behind a desk all day and with an apprenticeship I could learn a skill for life and start getting paid. Progress has done so much for me – I see myself working here for a long time. Adam

Apprenticeship Opportunities

A fantastic opportunity to ‘earn while you learn’ with one of our new Property Services apprenticeships.

We are looking for four new apprentices to join our busy Property Services team, delivering a range of repairs and maintenance services to our customers:

  • Apprentice Plumbing and Heating Engineer
  • Apprentice Electrician
  • Apprentice Bricklayer/Plasterer
  • Apprentice Joiner

We need you to be hardworking, customer focused, willing to learn and committed to always working to the best of your ability. You will be self-motivated, passionate about the work you do and have a positive ‘can do’ attitude. You will also need a minimum of 4 GCSE’s (including Maths and English).

If learning a trade, studying for a qualification and putting customers at the heart of everything you do sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you! 
In return, you will be given a fabulous opportunity to work directly with our highly skilled operatives, learning a trade, whilst studying for a national qualification and attending college one day each week.

We will support you throughout your apprenticeship, ensuring you have everything you need to achieve your goals and ambitions of becoming a full qualified tradesperson.
It is a great time to join the Property Services team here at Progress Housing Group. We are ambitious, and growing, driven by our purpose to have a positive impact on people and communities by providing high quality homes, supporting independence and creating opportunities.

We operate mainly in Lancashire, with some national presence. We are more than a housing provider and consider ourselves unique in the sector because we make a difference to people’s lives in so many ways.

We are committed to offering opportunities to all people, promoting diverse and inclusive communities in the workplace and through everything we do.  We offer a range of family friendly and inclusive employment policies to support employees from different backgrounds.  

We’d especially like to hear from anyone living in one of our homes or communities and will be prioritising these opportunities for tenants and their families.
