Brexit was a huge cause of the loss of skill in our industry, however, when we look to answer the question a little closer to home, the question that stands out revolves around recruitment into the industry, and the pathway that those just starting their careers, take.
For years, choosing construction as a career path, has been one that has been viewed as a last resort, or an ‘only’ option;
We wanted to bust that myth and join the ranks of many in our space, who are championing the opportunities that a career in construction offers. To do that, we’ve interviewed a number of industry leaders, and asked them to share their inspiring stories of what led them to choose construction as a career.
In this episode, we speak to Allan Sandilands. Head of Environmental Sustainability at the Bell Group, the UK’s largest commercial painting and decorating contractor, with a network of over 1000 qualified decorators and covering all of the UK.
He shares his story with us.
A huge thank you for your involvement.
