John Lord Flooring Takes On Two New Apprentices

John Lord Flooring, the UK’s leading specialist industrial and commercial flooring company are delighted to welcome two new apprentices to the flooring team. Natasha Brierley and Owen Sidlow joined us in January and will be working alongside our commercial flooring team gaining hands-on, practical experience with our experienced fitters.

John Edwards, Commercial Manager at John Lord commented ‘Due to the continued growth of the business, and our commitment to a fully employed workforce, we have started 2023 with a bang, taking on two new apprentices for our commercial flooring team.’

‘John Lord fitters are some of the best in the industry and understand the value of passing on those skills to the next generation. We are looking forward to helping Natasha and Owen kick-start their flooring career to reach their full potential.’

Commenting on her apprenticeship, Natasha said: ‘Being an apprentice here means gaining skills for life. The fitting team have been supportive, and I feel a great sense of pride breaking into a traditionally male-dominated industry like this.’

Owen said, ‘I’m really excited to be joining the John Lord team. I love that no day is ever the same – one day I could be working in a residential property and the next in a luxury retail building or education setting. I’m looking forward to building up my skills and moving my career on with John Lord.’
