Michael Unthank has received the Trainee of the Year (Craft) trophy at the annual Keepmoat Apprentice and Trainee Awards.

The 23-year-old from Adwick-le-Street is now half way through his NVQ Level 3 in joinery.

Michael, works for Bramall Construction which is part of the Keepmoat group.

He said: “It’s such a great start to my career and brilliant to have on my CV.

“I’m proud to be recognised as a good worker. The company has invested in me and I’m going to work as hard as I can to get ahead and work my way up to management.”

Michael joined Bramall in 2007 as a multi-skilled trainee but found his vocation in joinery, just like his dad, a joiner by trade.

Michael’s mentor, Nigel Carlin, praised his commitment and dedication.

He said: “Michael is a one off, he has all his own tools and cares for them like a master carpenter. He is a pleasure to work with and has a 100 per cent employment attendance record. I definitely see a site manager in the making.”

Ian Sutcliffe, Keepmoat’s chief executive, added: “Apprentice and trainee awards are an integral part of what we do.

“Apprentices are the lifeblood of the business and together with the trainees we support, give us a secure future going forward.

“The awards are a day to recognise achievements of all 300 trainees and apprentices in our business and those who support them in their learning and training too.”
