As market leaders, Morgan Sindall Property Services (MSPS) apprentice schemes present real opportunities to the local residents and community to create a pathway to a great career. MSPS is delighted to confirm they have reviewed their apprentice pay rates as part of their annual review. This means, for most of our apprentices, we have increased our hourly rate so they more accurately reflect the cost of living and are competitive within the current market. The new pay rates will be applied to all existing learners and new joiners with effect from 1 August 2019.
This will take the hourly rate of pay for craft apprentices in year 1, such as carpenters, bricklayers and painters, to £6.15 an hour and improve the minimum rate of pay for plumbing and electrical apprentices to £6.30 an hour. Rates will be reviewed each April in line with the National Minimum Wage (NMW) increases annually.

Samantha Knight, HR Director, said “We are a progressive organisation, as such we have listened to feedback and have reviewed our apprentice offer. We are thrilled to announce our apprentice increases, which we hope will attract the best possible candidates to our apprenticeship schemes for the future, as well as being competitive amongst the market and more accurately reflect the cost of living for our current apprentice community.
This review echoes our commitment to move towards a better standard of living for our apprentices in line with our commitments of being a member of the Living Wage Foundation.”
