‘Construct a Career’ Partners with Wates

Cidori is delighted to see more successful outcomes from our most recent ‘Construct a Career’ collaboration with O’Neill & Brennan, delivered in partnership with the Wates Group in Brent.

Wates currently has a number of live sites across Brent that will offer job opportunities for graduates of Construct a Career, which offers rapid solutions to the skills shortage facing the UK construction industry, and creates a seamless route to a career in construction.

‘The results we have seen from our first series of events in 2019 have proven that the initiative works. We already have 113 candidates successfully placed in work and by partnering with Wates Group we can now offer more candidates a direct route to employment.’ – Brendan Smith, O’Neill and Brennan.

Friday 31st January saw the 15 candidates complete their training in Brent and Su Pickerall – Wates Group Community Investment Manager commented:

‘We have a big skills gap in the construction industry and we are really keen to become a more diverse and inclusive sector. This kind of programme brings an opportunity to raise awareness about the construction industry and the vast range opportunities in it. It also opens opportunities for people that may not have considered construction before.’

 The Construct a Career initiative is the result of the collaboration between Cidori and construction recruitment specialist O’Neill & Brennan.
