Jack Mann – Garden Maintenance Apprentice
Jack joined our team in 2016 and was the first young person to come through the Instant Scenery Apprenticeship scheme.
After completing Construction and the Built Environment at BTEC L3 (Extended Diploma) at college and achieving 2 Distinctions and a Merit, Jack started at University but quickly decided that an apprenticeship would be a better option for him. Jack has grown up doing gardening with his father and his love of the outdoors meant that joining the Instant Scenery team suited him perfectly.
Jack describes himself as motivated, willing to learn and he follows instructions well. He has excelled in his time with us and we have had excellent feedback, both on his high working standards and professional approach. Keep up the good work, Jack!
