We’ve got the skills!

We’re delighted to announce that we are the lead competition sponsor for the Landscape, Gardening and Carpentry competitions at the nation’s largest skills and careers event, The Skills Show.

Taking place from the 13th – 15th November at the NEC in Birmingham, the Skills Show provides young people with the chance to unlock their potential and get excited about the world of work.

We believe in supporting our future generations as much as we can and by sponsoring The Skills Show we’re able to help young people find out about the career paths available to them.

On Friday 14th November at 1.55pm our very own HR Director, Mike Warner, will be presenting at the show talking about real people and real jobs, so if you’re attending – be sure to come along!

“We can’t get away from the fact that there remains a skills shortage in the construction industry,” explained Mike Warner, HR Director at Jewson. “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.”

Mike concluded: “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 looking forward to sharing my experiences, passing on advice and helping others who want to set out on their own path.”
