Lovell recently supported a job fair in Charlton, Greenwich, organised by the Royal Borough of Greenwich. The event provided a chance for Lovell to showcase its organisation and publish employment, apprenticeship and training schemes as well as advertise potential vacancies and meet local people looking for opportunities.
The one-day event was very well attended, and the Lovell stand attracted a large number of young people keen to find out about apprenticeship schemes in the construction industry.
Sophia Bruce, regional training advisor, comments: “We are working in partnership with the Royal Borough of Greenwich at Trinity Walk in Woolwich and are keen to play our part in events that help youngsters into work, as part of our commitment to the local community. There are great opportunities in construction, for both men and women, to learn a skilled trade or work in other exciting roles in the industry.”
20 apprentices are currently working on site at Trinity Walk, which is part of a wider regeneration scheme to transform three ageing estates in Woolwich into high-quality new neighbourhoods over the next 12 years. The partnership will deliver around 1,500 homes, of which a third will be affordable housing, and is boosting training, employment and business opportunities in the borough.
