We understand and recognise that our industry is public facing and we don’t give the best impression to members of the public, therefore by interacting with communities we hope we can change their perception of the industry and even promote the industry as a career option through the initiatives we take part in.
As a company we receive limited funding from the Government but we use it well and it allows us to train and upskill our teams, including our dedicated and hardworking apprentices. Upon employing a new member to the workforce, we immediately look at how we can further train them to ensure they aren’t only skilled but recognised as such. We routinely promote from within, with colleagues coming up through the ranks from a groundworker to manager, with support and mentoring from those that have done the same path before them.
We currently have large projects in North-West hotspots including Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool, Birkenhead and Wigan, and wherever possible we try to recruit at least one person from that area. We look for colleagues from all walks of life, trying not to see someone’s past but rather what they can be and for a company of our size, that is a huge investment, but we believe you get out what you put in.
