Landlords could see the arrival of more apprentices in the property industry after house builder Taylor Wimpey announced it has employed two new recruits.

Teenagers Frazer Chadwick and Warren Smith were welcomed into the firm's East Midlands construction branch, it was announced on Monday.

Managing director of the company, Steve Farmer said the return in confidence to the property market has led to a need to create jobs and recruit more workers.

The pair, aged 17 and 18, follow Taylor Wimpey apprentice Rob Castka, who is now a management trainee and was awarded a Silver Trowel bricklaying prize from Northamptonshire's Moulton College during his apprenticeship.

Targets by the National Apprenticeship Service aim to have one in five young people completing apprenticeships by 2020.

With rising house prices, landlords are advised that "now is the perfect time to invest in a brand new property and watch its value grow”, said Mr Farmer.

House prices rose for the fifth consecutive month in November, according to the Halifax House Price Index.

This is due to high demand and low supply, the November 2009 index reports.
