Natwest CricketForce 2015 is taking place on the 27th – 29th March. If you’re not sure what it’s all about, well, it’s a fantastic opportunity for cricket clubs from all over the UK to rejuvenate their club facilities ahead of the new season.
We have some great news! Our free to attend Pro Build Tour has been such a hit that we’ve decided to add new dates. For all trade professionals and apprentice builders read on to find out the new dates.
As part of National Apprentice Week 2015, we’re catching up with our very own Amy Edwards who has just completed her Customer Service NVQ at the Jewson Loughborough branch. Read on to hear from Amy about her experience as an apprentice and what she thinks about working in the world of construction.
Did you know that construction is the largest industry in the UK? With over 2.2 million people already working in the sector. However there’s still a huge demand for new recruits with lots of career opportunities.
Here at Jewson, we strongly believe that investing in new talent for the business is important to create a diverse work force and of course, for future growth. That’s why we’re fully supporting National Apprenticeship Week, taking place on the 9th to the 12th March. Read full article »
With the Cricket World Cup in full swing, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve launched a CricketForce scheme in Scotland. This is where Scottish cricket clubs will have the opportunity to gain £150 worth of funding to spend on improving their facilities.
In our last blog post we looked at how waste plasterboard can be used once it’s been recycled – and there’s a lot of it to be recycled. According to WRAP, 300,000 tonnes of plasterboard ends up as waste.
At Jewson, we like to help our customers whenever and however we can. As such, we’re really excited about our latest promotion. From the 16th-18th February, if you spend £600 exc. VAT on collected orders – you’ll qualify for a free bouquet of pink and white assorted flowers and tin of Stewarts Shortbread – just in time for Mother’s Day!
In our last blog post (Why we all need to Go Green for Plasterboard) we established that you cannot take waste plasterboard to a normal landfill site as this is potentially harmful to the environment. If, like us, you’re committed to continually improving your environmental performance, you’ll be curious to know how it can be re-used.
