We are committed to implementing positive changes in the community we are working in, during the construction phase and even after the project has finished. Some of the ways in which we are supporting the communities in which are working include:
- Directly employing staff from the locality, including unskilled operatives, apprentices and engineers
- Training and upskilling local staff
- Sourcing plant and materials from local suppliers
- Hiring local sub-contractors
- Purchasing materials from local suppliers
- Providing public amenities such as landscaping and park facilities
- Contributing to local projects
- Sponsoring local teams
- Providing site visits for schools and colleges
- Attending meet the buyer events
- Attending careers open days in local schools and colleges
- Upskilling the local supply chain to improve their performance on tenders and once they get to the site, so that they are better able to compete for work.
