Safeguarding the Supply of Newly Qualified Entrants
Construction has always reported unskilled and skilled shortages of labour in the industry, but there is a disconnect between the agencies, employers and the people trying to get into the industry.
In 2021 there is an EU Settlement Status application requirement following our exit from the EU, this could see a further exodus of workers from the UK to work back in their home countries.
By partnering up with us, it will be helping to safeguard the steady supply of newly qualified people at entry level to the construction industry.
Delivering & Supporting Social Value
Social Value, the Return on Investment a project provides to the local area within which it is being constructed, is gathering more relevance in the recruitment space for projects. TOMs and HACT are some of the monitoring tools now available to Main Contractors and Housebuilders that give them the ability to provide monetary value reporting to clients and developers.
There is no better time to take up this opportunity to have a Social Value generating training course provided by your company, which in turn will give you the added value that all recruitment agencies strive for – to win more work, PSL’s and tender interviews. It’s a win-win situation that we would like to offer to you at no cost.
What We Do
A typical training course shown here will run for between 2-3 weeks. We use our relationships with local Councils,
Job Centres, Housing Associations and Charities to receive referrals of learners to the course.
These courses are typically oversubscribed. We filter the candidates based on previous work experience and likelihood to succeed in construction.
In the current climate, 50% of the learners have worked in construction, were low paid workers but could not afford to renew their CSCS Cards.
Suitable candidates from these courses who will all go on to succeed again in their construction careers.

• Provide a steady stream of new people to the industry directly through your company
• Help your clients achieve their Section 106 Obligations and Social Value KPI’s
• Pass on the historical information to help your clients with the tender submissions
