Women in Construction seminar
Hannah Cowell, Community Investment Manager held a talk as part of the ‘Women in Construction’ seminar on the 13 November 2019. The presentation gave information about careers in construction and information about the works we are undertaking at Britannia Hackney sites and to empower the 19 women who attended to apply for the apprenticeship and live job vacancies which will be available throughout the projects. Careers advice and ideas about how to up-skill was also explored in the networking session after the event.
We received an email from Aretha Kelly Project and Training Manager Women in Construction with the following feedback from the event.
‘I just wanted to say a huge thank you for supporting and for helping to make our registration event a huge success yesterday. I really appreciated the effort you made to attend. You presented really well, everyone was very attentive and ask lots of questions. We have 19 new candidates signed up with us. My next step is to arrange the level 1 H&S training and the CSCS test for the candidates.’ Aretha Kelly Project and Training Manager
