Findley Academy Apprenticeships

Lofty ambitions? Join the Findley Roofing & Building Academy

We realise that when you are 16 to 18 years old, you will likely feel a great amount of pressure to decide on a career. You will want to find a path that offers genuine opportunities for professional progression, and will rightly expect to be well-rewarded from the beginning.

Is that possible? It certainly is here at Findley Roofing & Building Academy.

Why should you serve your apprenticeship with us?

Becoming a member of our acclaimed Academy presents you with the perfect route to a hugely satisfying and stimulating career in roofing and building.

It means an opportunity to ‘learn your craft’ over a three-year apprenticeship as a professional roofer and builder. In the process, you will work alongside time-served staff with more than 30 years’ experience of catering to the most demanding requirements of homeowners across Newcastle, Sunderland, Northumberland, Durham, Middlesbrough and wider Northern England.

It also means being paid more than the national average apprenticeship wage, with the expectation of being employed by us at the end of your apprenticeship. Yes, that’s right: our last six apprentices were all offered jobs once their placement concluded. With the average starting salary for a roofer at Findley Roofing & Building being £22,677 a year, that’s quite an incentive.
