SBS Bristol supports apprentice

The Smith Brothers Stores branch in Bristol has recently supported Taylor Darby, a first-year mechanical apprentice employed at TClarke, by providing him with Rothenberger tools.

TClarke is an established provider of integrated construction services including infrastructure, M&E contracting, residential and accommodation, technologies, and facilities management.

The firm – like SBS – is an ardent believer in the benefits of apprenticeships, and pairs each of its trainees with a skilled mentor who has already successfully passed their own apprenticeship. 

Since the introduction of the Appreticeship Levy, SBS has both upskilled existing staff and taken on multiple apprentices within the last year.

With the SBS workforce now exceeding 300 individuals, the business sees the Levy as a tool to drive growth and is continuing to recruit trainees across a range of areas.

Two examples of courses currently being studied by SBS apprentices include supply chain warehouse operations and digital marketing.
