On November 25th, four Apprentices from The Sovini Group attended a special celebratory graduation ceremony in Liverpool’s iconic Grand Central Hall.

Sovini Construction Apprentice Joiner Declan Gallagher attended the ceremony alongside Contracts Manager Tony Dolan.

Declan received his graduation certificate from special guest speaker, Olympic Gymnast and legend Beth Tweedle MBE. An inspirational figure, Beth told her story on the night of determination and perseverance.

Declan shares:

“It was a privilege to attend the awards. There is no such thing as an average day as an Apprentice Joiner for Sovini Construction. Every job is different, and I really enjoy the variety. Over the course of my apprenticeship programme, I have carried out work on: Joists and flooring, stairs, kitchen fitting, first fix, second fix, and the erecting of roof trusses. I am so pleased to say I have gained my Level 3 in Carpentry and Joinery. The thing I’ve most enjoyed while working at Sovini Construction is learning a wide variety of new skills that I hope to apply to my future career with them”.

Sovini Construction Contracts Manager, Tony Dolan shares:

“Congratulations to Declan on the completion of his Joinery and Carpentry Apprenticeship. At Sovini Construction we promote self-development and key skills required to become the best. Through hard-work Declan has consistently demonstrated that he is now a capable and talented joiner. After a challenging 18 months for so many, that has put huge pressure on the job community, Declan’s hard-work and drive has been outstanding to see. He deserved this evening to mark his incredible achievement. Dec, from all at Sovini Construction… Well Done!”.
