Apprentice plumber Adam Streeton finds dream job with the Vistry Group and Bovis Homes at Stortford Fields housing development in Hertfordshire
An apprentice has discovered his dream job thanks to an opportunity at a Bishop's Stortford housing development.
Adam Streeton, 29, marked the recent National Apprenticeship Week by embarking on his fourth year training to be a plumber with the Vistry Group.
Currently based at Stortford Fields with Bovis Homes, Streeton is working towards a Level 3 diploma in the trade which has become his passion.
And he is proof that it is never too late to find your dream job as, just a few years ago, he had no idea what he wanted to do for a living having tried a succession of different roles which failed to give him the job satisfaction he craved.
"I wasn't very academic at school and didn't really know what job I wanted," said Streeton. "After finishing school, I ended up doing a vehicle spray painting college course, followed by a job working for a backup power generator company, where I achieved a Level 2 in electrical and mechanical engineering.
"Soon after a friend got me into plumbing, I quickly realised it was the career path I wanted to follow. I've always struggled to focus on topics that don't interest me, so when I found myself so engaged and interested in plumbing, I knew I had found the right path."
