Bricklaying is a core function within the construction sector, particularly the house building sector. The Government has a target to build significantly more new homes over the coming years and therefore the demand for bricklayers has never been higher.
As an Apprentice Bricklayer you will lay bricks, blocks and other types of building components in mortar to construct and repair walls, foundations, partitions, arches and other structures eg chimney stacks. You may also refurbish brickwork and masonry on restoration projects. The range of sites and projects that you will work on include large commercial developments, new builds in housing, alterations, extensions and restorations. You may work one-on-one or on larger jobs where their bricklaying group (gang) may work on a particular section of a building alongside other bricklaying gangs as well as other trades.
