Apprentice Stories

George’s Story
I joined Danny Sullivan Group two and a half years ago and have completed two apprenticeships. I now have three qualifications, NVQ 2 in groundworks, NVQ 2 in site team leadership and a NVQ 3 in occupational works supervision. In addition to gaining my qualifications I have done so much training, it has been brilliant. A combination of all this has helped propel me to where I am today and helped me move up the career ladder.

DSG has played such an important part in my career progression I will always be very grateful to them. I got to grow my skills whilst getting paid, met new people and gained lifelong skills and #skillsforlife.

My highlight has to be my recent completion of Trainee Foreman Apprenticeship. After a year of hard graft, getting to the finishing line has felt amazing. To get this qualification at such a young age just goes to show if you put your mind and hard work to something and with the right support anything is achievable.

I would 100% tell young people especially those who struggle with school like I did to do an apprenticeship with DSG. Classroom based learning wasn’t for me. Here I have been able to be very hands on and your part of a great friendly team who really take care of you and look out for you.

I have loved my time with DSG and also learned so much from many experienced people in the organisation.

Clint’s Story
I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity to do an apprenticeship with an integrated masters. I have learnt so much at the Danny Sullivan Group, such as advancing my Excel skills and understanding various systems. My manager is very supportive and directs me towards project management, which in itself brings many skills like time management, stakeholder engagement and effective communication.

It’s great to be able to look forward to coming into the office where the team are lovely. Everyone works hard, but we also have a good laugh too. I’ve always felt part of the DSG family. I do feel I have been given a great opportunity in comparison to other graduates I know.

As a systems and data analyst, there is potential for lots of progression here and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for me.

Clint’s manager Umer says, “ As a progressive organisation we firmly believe in equipping our staff with the best tools to do a great job. It makes us more productive and allows us to value our people and do the right thing. Apprenticeships are one of the many ways we’re fulfilling this commitment to our people and the DSG family. Clint is a remarkable example of someone who is benefiting on the apprenticeship journey. He is a great asset to our diverse team”.

Georgia’s Story
I was keen to learn about leadership roles and wanted to pursue that as a career. At the Danny Sullivan Group I’ve been given a fantastic opportunity to be the training team lead. It’s amazing how much I have grown as a person and a leader. The wide range of responsibilities has really increased my confidence and a broad understanding of the sector. This apprenticeship is helping me to visualise the type of future leader I want to be.

Since starting my apprenticeship in November 2021 I’m learning every day on the job and being able to get qualified at the same time. This not only benefits me but also the business. My colleagues are great, and I’ve learnt a lot from their expertise. I’m confident I’ll be progressing to a more supervisory role in the future which is perfect for my development.

I really do see myself being part of the DSG family for years to come.
