Want to work in Construction

In April 2013 after 6 months preparation, we launched the “Want to Work in Construction” initiative. This was held at the AMEX Community Stadium in association with our founding partner, Ed Allison-Wright of Centurion Group and assisted by City College Brighton & Hove and Albion in the Community, the charitable arm of Brighton & Hove Football Club.

Over a period of 5 days, people not currently in employment listened to short masterclasses on how practicing construction professionals had got where they are and some of the things they had achieved in their working life.

Eminent professionals included: Andy Simons, the Architect of the AMEX Stadium; the current Chairman of the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers; a representative of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors; and a Land Surveyor, Simon Ellis, complete with all his electronic instruments.
