Great news for Joey

Housing Plus Group is committed to creating more opportunities and rewarding careers for apprentices.

Joey Pennick joined us as an apprentice in 2019. Now, he’s completed his apprenticeship, gained a Distinction in his Level 3 Association of Accounting Technicians qualification and landed a permanent position in our team.

Joey’s learning took place online, so his studies could continue in the pandemic and he showed fantastic self-motivation to keep learning while he and his colleagues were working remotely. That determination paid off, when he completed the course.

“I really wanted to do well but I was surprised to get a distinction!”

The apprenticeship gave Joey an insight into a variety of roles within the finance team. When a vacancy arose for a ledger assistant, he was ready to apply.

His manager Pete Russell says:

“Joey already had experience as well as a professional qualification and a wide understanding of the role of our team and the work of the Group. I think his success underlines the value of apprenticeships.”

Joey loves his new role. “I enjoy working in an environment where we make a positive difference and see the results. When I go out and spot one of our homes, it feels good.”
