Minister backed employment initiative kicks-off at the Amex

Up to 20 new job opportunites will be created next week in Brighton and Hove by a scheme backed by a government minister, local MPs and the local construction industry.

The Want to Work in Construction initiative, a partnership between Albion in the Community, City College and local construction companies will see up to 50 job seekers and students take part in a free week-long prgramme of workshops and masterclasses on working in the construction industry at the American Express Community Stadium.

The programme, which will be opened by Councillor Bill Randall the Mayor of Brighton & Hove, will see atendees take part in over 20 different sessions covering all aspects of construction including architecture and design, civil and structural engineering and sustainability and ecology. They will also hear from experts who have worked on the Olympic Park and Amex Stadium projects and get the opportunity to visit some of the city’s major development sites.

The group will be joined on the final day of the programme by local MP’s Caroline Lucas and Mike Weatherley. Those who impress employers the most during the week will be offerred the employment opportunities which will be in the form of jobs, apprenticeships and work placements with participating companies.

The initiative has also received ministerial backing. Eric Pickles MP, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, the government department which oversees housebuilding and planning said: “The construction industry is vital to the UK economy and 'Want to Work in Construction Week' is a great way for Brighton & Hove's 16-24 year olds to get the sort of job advice, work experience or apprenticeship opportunities that could help kick start a career or inspire a budding entrepreneur to success.”

The Want to Work in Construction programme starts on Monday April 8th finishing on Friday April 12th.
