The Skills Show provided hands-on demonstrations and advice on career opportunities, aiming to encourage and equip young people into further education, skills and apprenticeships.
As the lead competition sponsor, Jewson provided a variety of building materials for the Landscape Gardening and Carpentry competitions.
Jewson are committed to promoting careers in the construction industry and encouraging the younger generation to learn skilled trades or to take up roles within merchanting.
Mike Warner, HR Director at Jewson: We can’t get away from the fact that there remains a skills shortage in the construction industry. However awareness is key to the issue. Young people need to understand all the options open to them when it comes to choosing a career path.
That’s why Jewson is so passionate about actively encouraging young people into the construction industry, which offers a multitude of rewarding roles. The Skills Show is an ideal platform for us to help fly the flag and a chance to talk directly to attendees about the opportunities within the merchant sector and beyond.
Construction is such a diverse and varied career path and as for working in the merchant sector, for me it’s been a rewarding and varied career. I am keen to share my experiences, pass on advice and help others who want to set out on their own path.
