Highly Commended: Building Plymouth Technical Apprentice of the Year 2023

Huge congratulations to Alex Doyle who is undertaking a Higher Level 4 in Civil Engineering apprenticeship with Obedair Construction and Exeter College, for being Highly Commended in the Building Plymouth Technical Apprentice of the Year Awards 2023.

After receiving his Highly Commended Award, Alex Doyle said: “It is a privilege to be around other aspiring apprentices who will form the future of construction within Plymouth.”

Alex’s nomination strongly evidenced that he has the right personality traits to succeed in the construction industry. Being described as trustworthy, enthusiastic, and a team player, Alex has also shown that he is willing to go above and beyond for any task.

Alex excelled quickly in his role, previously undertaking his Level 3. He was left in charge of multi-million pound jobs, proving his maturity and capability. Since joining Obedair he has taken on responsibilities that have exceeded expectations at this early stage in his career.

What has also been noticed about Alex is his desire to help and support new learners. He is hugely enthusiastic and supportive of all new learners coming through, going out of his way to make them feel welcome.

Carl Heslop, Managing Director at Obedair Construction said: “Apprenticeships are the lifeblood of the industry and its important that we do everything we can to support them within construction. Obedair are proud of the apprentices we recruit and train, and take great pride in seeing individuals such as Alex thrive in an amazing sector of opportunity.”

Not only does Alex give 100% in work and in his studies, but he also shows great support for the City of Plymouth. He has worked behind the scenes to help deliver Building Plymouth’s Mission Mammoth STEAMFest, leading on activities with the children, and he is also committed to helping with the preparation and distribution of food on the Shekinah soup runs. This is often done after a long day at university!

Sam Morcomb, Pre-Construction Manager at Obedair Construction added: It is great that Alex has been recognised for what we already see in him – a bright young man with a bright future. Home grown talent in the City of Plymouth!”
