City Building apprentices are twice as nice

City Building’s instructors are seeing double with this year’s intake of modern apprentices, thanks to twins being amongst the talented group.

Apprentice joiners Vittorio and Santino Pelosi, 19, are just two of the 58 modern apprentices who recently completed their induction period at City Building’s Queenslie Training Centre, with a number now starting to get their first taste of work on the job.

The group is possibly the most diverse intake in City Building’s 10-year history, with over 10 of the team being either female, a care leaver or self-identified as a minority ethnicity.
