Josh Rowley – Apprentice Gas Engineer at DA Bunning Gas Ltd

Josh is the newest member of the team, starting his apprenticeship with the company in September 2017.

Josh is an enthusiastic and keen 18 year old. He left the Marches school with a hope to develop his skills in construction and started a plumbing course at Oswestry college. After a year on the course he decided that he wanted to do more physical work and decided to do property maintenance which specialized in kitchens and bathrooms. During this period he gained many skills, which will help him complete his apprenticeship with DA Bunning Gas.

Josh decided to look for apprenticeships so he could gain qualifications and after a while he came across D.A. Bunning Gas. Josh says..

“The Company was in the process of expanding and it made me want to join in on the journey of making this company an even bigger success.  I was keen to know more about the business so i researched the company more, and i was impressed by the work and how hard Dale Bunning had worked to get where he is now.  It has shown me how much i  could develop as a person with all the qualifications i could gain. I decided to apply and i am so happy to be part of the team. I would like to thank everyone in the business for giving me this great opportunity! I have been made to feel so welcome and already feel at home and I can’t wait to get started and meet all the new customers in the future”
