We have had the delight of having our apprentices with O’Rourke Contracting for 6 Months now, and have taken the opportunity to ask them what they think about being an O’Rourke employee. Lilly and Ivan are studying Business Administration at Bexley College whilst doing their apprenticeship with us at O’Rourke Contracting. Their duties include answering phones, scanning, ordering invoices and filling in data for our work order database for our maintenance contract with Bromley Council. They chose to do an apprenticeship to learn in a workplace environment, and have learnt important and useful work and life skills, how to work hard, earn their own money and how to budget.
“The people are great! Colleagues are really supportive of Me and my studies, and I have the opportunity to progress here” – Lilly
“People have faith in my abilities here, and I feel independent having my own job” – Ivan
Furthermore, our third apprentice Rebecca has now been with us for over a year and is progressing her career within the company through the accountancy path – Well done Rebecca!
