150th apprentice for MAN_TP
Manchester Airport’s Transformation Programme (MAN-TP) has taken on its 150th apprentice, meaning it will smash the target set at the start of the £1bn project.
James Heslop, 19, who grew up in Wythenshawe, is the latest recruit to start their career on the project, which is the largest investment ever made in Manchester Airport’s history.
MAN-TP will totally transform the UK’s third largest airport, bringing major improvements to the customer experience in the process.
James secured his new role as a trainee construction manager through a partnership between the airport, construction partner Laing O’Rourke and the University of Salford.
Following his father into a career in construction was always James’ dream, and having enjoyed a week’s work experience at the airport while still studying, he found the opportunity to combine the two was too good for him to pass up.
