As part of WRW's commitment to promote the construction industry, Business Development Director Jon Williams and BIM Coordinator Lucy Stephens attended a CITB Construction Ambassadors workshop in readiness for assisting the CITB at events in the future.
The Construction Ambassadors programme raises awareness of the industry and the career opportunities that are available to young people and new entrants to the industry. It aims to embed itself within an employer's strategy for corporate social responsibility, based around engagement with education, and is a vehicle for encouraging participation in construction craft and technical apprenticeship programmes.
As WRW's nominated Construction Ambassadors, Jon and Lucy will act as positive role models and try to motivate young people into seeing the opportunities careers in construction can offer. They will attend at least one event over the next few months where they will give young people a real life, credible perspective of the industry by delivering presentations and career talks during school assemblies and career fairs.
