An apprentice joiner is helping a football club by working to improve its bar area.

Dominik Ziomek is studying at Kirklees College while working at Baratt Homes’ St Andrew’s View development site in Morley.

He has also been carrying out work at Emley Moor Football Club to expand its bar area.

Mr Ziomek, 31, has helped by building new partition walls to make more space inside the building.

Wayne Sutton, contracts manager at Barratt Developments, said: “Dominik is a fantastic student, happy to support and get involved with all projects, and we’re very proud of his contributions to the local community in Morley so far.

“He’s been brilliant on site and a pleasure for the site team to work with – we wish him continued success in his career as a joiner – I’m sure he’ll go far!”

Mr Ziomek, who is originally from Poland, is studying carpentry and joinery at college, learning both practical and theory elements, and he hopes to train as an assistant site manager after finishing his course.

He said: “I really enjoy the work that I do at St Andrew’s View.

“But Emley Moor is an important recreational ground for locals, so when I was given the opportunity to help improve the facilities there I thought it was a great idea!

“I’m looking forward to pushing on my career with Barratt Homes, as everyone on site is so helpful and supportive, and I hope to train as an assistant site manager when my apprenticeship is completed in a year’s time.”
