Axis’ Victoria Basham, HR Manager and Stewart Street, Contracts Manager recently shared their knowledge and experience of the construction industry at Peabody’s Hot Topics event.
The event was the fourth of 12 free virtual webinars organised by Peabody for anyone seeking knowledge about emerging careers, growth sectors, how to access employment pathways, and much more. Previous topics included employment support, entrepreneurship, and the green sector.
Having worked in partnership with Peabody for several years, we were invited to participate in the ‘Construction’ Hot Topics event.
We delivered a short presentation focusing on construction, giving a sector overview and information on different employment pathways into the industry. We were able to answer questions as part of the Q&A at the end. There were a variety of attendees including job seekers. – Victoria Basham, HR Manager
We were joined by speakers from Wates, who spoke about training opportunities and the qualifications you need to work in the sector, and Peabody, who shared an insight into their development and regeneration plans, and the opportunities available on their housing sites.
