JK Brickwork

My name is Joel and I have been a Qualified Bricklayer for 9 years after finishing my 3 year apprenticeship in 2010. I am an award winning bricky and worked for a well respected general builder in Newmarket where I gained experience in all types of general building. Over the last 6-7 years I have expanded into doing larger jobs, mainly extensions both small and large, contracting all trades for a complete build from start to finish. Many references available. My feedback speaks for itself 👍🏼

About JK Brickwork

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.


NVQ level 3 in brickwork (Advanced Qualification) - This qualification allows me to go straight 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 all aspects of building work and offer all trades under one roof with my great team of sub contractors.
