Hudson Contract encourages young people to pursue a career in construction
Hudson Contract is encouraging young people across the country to pursue a career in construction with a new video campaign featuring apprentices, employers, Ian Billyard, principal of Leeds College of Building and MP for East Yorkshire, Rt Hon Sir Greg Knight.
Aimed at addressing potential industry skills shortages and inspiring young people to take up apprenticeships in the different construction trades, from bricklaying to plumbing, the video highlights the benefits of a career in the industry, for the individual and the wider sector.
Recommendations from both male and female apprentices in the construction industry can be heard throughout the video. The true-to-life testimonials of their experiences in the industry are designed to inspire other young people to consider and pursue a career in construction.
Managing director of Hudson Contract, Ian Anfield, can also be heard giving advice on the best ways to embark on a career in the construction industry, which he strongly believes is through an apprenticeship.
Hudson Contract founder and chairman, David Jackson says: "The success stories highlighted in the video are confirmation that dedicated apprenticeship schemes not only work, but inspire and excite young people beginning their career in the construction industry.
"We hope that our commitment to developing confident, passionate and motivated apprentices, alongside the introduction of the new Apprenticeship Levy launched by the Government in April, will play both a big part in addressing the potential skills shortage in the construction industry and inform young people of some of the exciting opportunities available to them."
