Local Labour Recruitment Does Not Mean Lowered Standards in Construction

Tiling NVQ The only thing better than hearing news of a new construction project, is hearing that they plan to use as many local workers as possible.  Keeping labour local means more work for Sheffield NVQ qualified construction workers as well as the opportunity for recognition in your own community that hopefully leads to future work in the Sheffield area as well.  Projects that encompass several things simultaneously are also beneficial since they ultimately mean long term work for those employed on them.  One Sheffield project begun just this month offers both of these things — with NVQ construction Sheffield employees at the forefront for selection.

Sheffield Home Improvements

When the Apollo group was chosen for the revamping and improvements of homes across Sheffield, it was expected that recruitment of construction workers would be significantly increased.  The £10 million project was designed to provide insulated over-cladding to 1,000 homes in the Lansdowne and Hanover areas.  Another 200 homes were added to the contract as part of the “Decent Homes” program.  With the project expected to last two years, the Apollo group informed Sheffield that it would be using specialists as well as providing NVQ qualified construction locals with employment opportunities and there was even some opportunity for training.

This particular project aside, the government’s “Decent Homes” program has been allocated £1.6 Billion for the improvement of 150,000 homes.  If a 1,200 home project is creating jobs for locals, can you imagine what will happen when the 150,000 home project gets underway?  Now is the time for workers to prepare so as not to be left out of these incredible opportunities.

A Construction NVQ in Sheffield is Important for Every Type of Project

Construction professionals often make the mistake of assuming that since companies are promising to take on local workers, they must be willing to take anyone.  Providing locals with jobs does not mean that companies are willing to risk their good name and reputation to provide substandard employees with a job.  The same rules still apply and you must be properly qualified and certified if you hope to be able to take your place on projects of this magnitude. For this reason construction professionals should make sure they have their Construction NVQ in Sheffield and are therefore qualified for the up coming roles.

Obtaining your Level 2 Dry Lining NVQ or your Level 2 Tiling NVQ is the most simple yet effective way of increasing your chances of being selected for these redevelopment projects.  They are going to be taking place all over Sheffield for the next several years and the demand for workers is going to continue to increase.  Dry Liners and tile workers especially should be working toward their Dry Lining NVQ or Tiling NVQ since these two trades are always in high demand.

A Dry Lining NVQ or Tiling NVQ will ensure that you are one of the first in line when local workers are recruited.  It also means that you are prepared as the rest of the improvement projects begin to take place.
