Hello there, my name is Joel and I have been a Qualified Bricklayer for 3 1/2 years after finishing my 3 year apprenticeship early 2010. Although I am fairly new to the bricklaying trade, I am an award winning bricklayer who is both confident and competent in what I do.
Joel is a very hard working young man. He has done an exceptional job transforming my garden. He always arrived when he said he would, and worked throughout the day. He asked my opinion at every stage of the work, before he went ahead. He constantly kept me informed via email, text or mobile. Would highly recommend Joel. You will not be disappointed.

I started my apprenticeship in 2007 at a well respected building company based in Kennett nr Newmarket. They are a general building firm who specialise in all aspects of building work from extensions to repointing. I worked for 3 years with a bricklayer who had been laying bricks for 25 years. He was a great teacher and had an array of knowledge in the building trade. I qualified after 3 years at college and decided to declare myself as self-employed and work on site as a sub-contractor. I was on site for a year and then decided that I need to broaden my horizons in the building trade. Throughout my time bricklaying I have gained skills in all aspects of general building and decided it was about time to start on my own as a sole trader to make a name for myself in the building trade for all the right reasons.
Qualifications & Accreditations
NVQ level 3 in brickwork (Advanced Qualification) - This qualification allows me to go staright into a job as a foreman if I wanted to. Most tradesman only have an NVQ2 and only the best apprentices get the option of doing a 3rd year which I was put forward for.
In the first 2 years of my apprenticeship, my work both at college and for my employer won me 2 awards at the end of my 2nd year in 2009. They were :-
-SJCC Bricklaying NVQ level 2 'Apprentice of the year' award
-SJCC John Palmer Cup Winner 'Overall apprentice of the year' 2009 I am both confident and competent in most aspects of building work such as :-
- Patio / Paving
Throughout my 6 years in the trade I have learned to turn my hand to most things in the general building trade.
I always offer a reliable, punctual, friendly and efficient service to all my clients.
