Carol Lynch, Chief Executive of Construction Youth Trust said:
‘Now more than ever, it is incredibly important that young people are made aware of the fantastic career opportunities open to them within the construction and built environment sector. #ConstructLondon is a chance for industry to come together and highlight the incredible range of career, apprenticeship and training opportunities our sector still has to offer, inspiring the next generation about their future pathways and career potential.’
Nigel Sandford, Operations Manager for National Careers Service London said:
‘#ConstructLondon has been designed to highlight the volume and wide variety of construction job vacancies that have emerged as well as the many quality apprenticeship and training opportunities available in London. We piloted the event in July and instantly realised the need for and potential of a positive and collaborative online event like this. Especially as we are about to enter a second lockdown. Although face-to-face events and career fairs are not possible, people who are keen to explore the world of work can still access support from National Careers Service, either online or by calling 0800 100 900.’
David Warnes, Deputy Principal of West London College said:
‘#ConstructLondon presents a perfect, safe and accessible way to put London’s construction and its accessible job and training opportunities firmly on the map. At West London College we will use the event to promote our many high-quality construction apprenticeships and training opportunities so we can play our part in building the future of construction in London.’
