We are committed to encouraging young people to start a career in the housebuilding industry, whether that’s in construction roles, sales, marketing, finance, or planning.
Suppliers and contractors are selected based on the number of apprentices they employ and we have a system in place to help incentivise them to address their own training initiatives. In 2020 & 2021, we are hoping to take on a total of 120 work experience students aged 16-18.
In addition, we have developed great relationships with a number of colleges to help young people find their way into the industry. At our Manorfields development in Swadlincote, we installed a foundation for students from the Stephen Burke Construction Academy to work on. This enabled students to learn a variety of skills including bricklaying, risk assessments, and quality standards. Having now successfully implemented this initiative with
bricklaying learners, we now look forward to introducing it to other trades such as carpentry.

As part of our commitment to working with and supporting the local communities in which we operate, each year we encourage our employees to give something back. Whether that is through visits to local primary schools to teach children about the importance of site safety and diversity in construction or taking part in charity events, we are dedicated to making sure we give something back to the communities and areas in which we build.
