Ewan Jenkins, Apprentice Bricklayer at Pye Homes, Shares His Experiences

Each month, we hear from someone who works for our company to explain more about their role, the ins and outs of their daily job, achievements they’re proud of, and what they like about working for Pye Homes.

This month, we spoke to Ewan Jenkins, apprentice bricklayer at Pye Homes, to find out more about his job role.

What are your main duties?

I’m an apprentice, so I’m learning on the job four days a week and in the classroom for one day a week. On an average dayI get to site at about 7.10 , ready to start at 7.30. I don’t like to rush and be stressed so I make sure I get there early. I’m mostly bricklaying with a trowel, but sometimes I might be needed on other jobs such as plastering or labouring and occasional snagging to make sure any issues that arose unexpectedly for a client are resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible.  

How long have you been working for Pye? What do you like about the company?

I’m about to celebrate my first anniversary at Pye. I started in September 2021. I can’t believe it’s been a year already, it’s flown by! It sounds basic, but just being treated like a valued employee, the level of mutual respect at Pye & Blenheim definitely stands out, everyone is so kind, polite and well-mannered 

Is there anything that you’ve worked on that you’re particularly proud of?

Myself. Honestly, if you’d have seen me this time last year and seen how far I’ve come since I first started the job, you’d see what I meanI’m a completely different man now. I’m really proud of how far I’ve come and the fact that the subcontractors we work with, G&M, have offered me a job upon completion of my apprenticeship year speaks for itself, I think.
