Get involved in City Centre South with Coventry job shop event tomorrow

Coventry Editorial 6th Feb, 2024   0

THE JOB SHOP is hosting an apprenticeship and careers event tomorrow (Wednesday) as part of the £450million City Centre South project.

Partnered with The Hill Group, which is delivering the scheme, the event will give people the opportunity to put themselves forward for a degree-level apprenticeship to train as construction managers or quantity surveyors.

Applicants will need to be studying towards A-levels or BTEC qualifications or have completed them in the past couple of years.

The Hill Group is delivering the £450 million mixed-use project along with development partner Shearer Property Group.

The goal is to add green spaces, revamp important areas, and bring in a large number of homes, jobs, and more than 8,000 square meters of new commercial space.

Coun Dr Kindy Sandhu, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills at Coventry City Council said: “This represents a fantastic opportunity for Coventry residents to get into the construction industry, gaining valuable skills whilst earning as they learn and developing their careers.”

Andy Fancy, Managing Director at The Hill Group said: “At Hill, we have an unwavering passion for making a meaningful impact on the communities in which we work. As we embark on this landmark development in Coventry, we are committed to fostering social value through various initiatives.

“As part of this effort, we are keen to create valuable career pathways for local residents. I would encourage anyone who has an interest in buildings and construction to come and visit us to talk about apprenticeship opportunities and the positive impact they can have on professional development.”
