Morgan Sindall Construction is committed to developing and inspiring the next generation of construction professionals in the East of England. They often express their pride to be part of the New Anglia Youth Pledge, supporting various initiatives across the region that help young people aged 16-24 secure training and employment opportunities.
The company regularly engages with local schools and county-level events through the Enterprise Advisor Network, and as a Cornerstone Employer, by targeting East Anglia’s three key Opportunity Areas (namely Ipswich, Norwich, as well as Fenland and East Cambridgeshire).
Why are they so committed? Because in a highly competitive industry like construction, Morgan Sindall Construction has discovered that utilising trainees and apprentices can give them a significant advantage.
Helen Clements, Morgan Sindall Construction’s community investment advisor and Chair of NALEP Building Growth Skills Group explained: “The Youth Pledge is a positive way of demonstrating our support for developing future talent across sectors in the East of England. Our 11 trainees and apprentices support and help to future-proof our business with succession planning, as well as ensuring a steady flow of new ideas.
“One of the benefits of welcoming work experience students is that it helps to widen our talent pool of entry level applicants. And it also gives young people the opportunity to demonstrate their ability and grow in confidence.
“In our view, it’s in the interest of all companies to fulfil the Youth Pledge in an era where all sectors have skills opportunities and the potential to provide exciting development prospects for our future workforce.”
