Hi my name is Graham White, my business is Heating and Plumbing Engineering; Just Gas Limited
I left school at 16 having had a weeks work experience at a local company. They like what they saw and offered me an apprenticeship. 5 years later I had completed my apprenticeship at South Devon College and in April 2005 I decided to set up a business of my own.
My first year trading was a big learning curve, and at the end of the first year I decided to employ an apprentice. As my business started to grow I was encouraged to become a limited company.
My apprentice went to the same college one day a week and past his NVQ Level 1, 2 and 3. He also went on to complete his Gas Certificate and is now a full time Gas Safe Heating Engineer, who drives a company van and working on new build projects.
We were offered some office space at Western Business Park, at this point as my business continued to grow I appointed a third employee, a company secretary, two more vans and a car for office use and deliveries.
