Like Father, Like Son


Since its beginnings, J Hart has always been involved with the training and development of junior members of staff such as Apprentices. You may have read back in April, Jonny himself started out as an Apprentice. This is where he learnt his trade and developed his skills to the high standard to which he runs his company now. Offering young people apprenticeships allows J Hart to teach and train them, while giving them a chance to work themselves into a professional career.

It is an exciting time for the Hart family at the moment as Jonny’s son Harvey has just started his apprenticeship in the family business. Harvey will be enrolling at Hull college in September 2017 and starting his 4-year apprenticeship. He will be on a day release at college and on site 4 days a week under the strict eye of John Britchford, one of our expert Joiner and Kitchen Fitters.

Jonny stated:
“It seems crazy that my own apprenticeship started over 30 years ago. Where has the time gone? I trained at a company where it was just me and the boss. Now my son is joining our company where we employ 28 members of staff with offices, stores and showrooms right across Hull and the East Riding.”

At school and 6th form, Harvey was always interested in making things and did well in design and technology. This of course excited Jonny and the team as it meant he might one day work alongside them. He is very keen to learn a trade and is particularly interested in timber work and manufacturing. He has always been encouraged by his dad to graft hard, be assertive, willing and helpful, but most of all listen and are honest.

Jonny Continued:
“Harvey will learn how to become not only a fantastic Joiner, but also about the importance of persistence and constantly improving in a career. Mostly, he will understand how to deliver excellent customer care and service, which is vital to us all at J Hart. Best of luck Harvey and welcome to the team.
Love from Dad”

The whole team are very excited for Harvey to get started this August.
