Scunthorpe based Clugston Construction, currently the main contractor on a £145m Energy Recover Facility in Lincoln and a new Academy in Cleethorpes, is participating in Open Doors Weekend.
On the 9th and 10th of November Clugston will open the doors of its Lincoln and Cleethorpes sites so that people from the region can take a tour of the sites to learn more about the projects, their development and the world of construction.
Open Doors is an industry initiative to present construction in an engaging and interesting way and showcase the dynamic, exciting career opportunities that construction has to offer. The projects will also demonstrate the importance of construction to both the national and regional economies.
The Open Doors scheme is being trialled across the country and is the result of a partnership of four leading industry bodies, UK Construction Group (UKCG), CITB-ConstructionSkills, The Considerate Constructors Scheme and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
Clugston is one of over 23 employers are taking part in Open Doors on 75 sites across England, Scotland and Wales.
Speaking on behalf of the Company, Paul Gouland, Marketing Director, said: “Construction is undergoing rapid change and needs to develop a skilled workforce to meet these challenges it faces. Nowadays construction is more about careers than jobs and the expected increase in demand for management roles in the next few years means that we need quality talent entering the industry now to fill these future positions.
“Open Doors’ is a unique opportunity for the industry to display the complexity and scope of modern construction projects and give people a taste of what it’s really like to work in the industry. But places will be limited so I’d encourage anyone interested to go on the site and register to secure their place to avoid disappointment.”
