Introducing Talent for Development by Thakeham
Thakeham’s Trainee & Recruitment Programme
The Talent for Development programme has been designed to nurture talent within Thakeham by structuring professional journeys. It will also support attracting new skills and talent to join the Thakeham team.
The Thakeham Group can offer employment opportunities that reflect the entire lifecycle of development. Opportunities range from land sourcing and planning promotion, running through technical design, engineering, quantity surveying, buying, site management, and on to marketing, sales, customer service and support administration.
In addition to the opportunities we can offer, we work with a team of highly professional hand-picked consultants, suppliers and contractors, each with recruitment requirements. We establish long and successful relationships and our Talent for Development initiative will see us working closely together, promoting and communicating careers in house building and construction.
As well as graduates, trainees and apprentices, we will be looking to attract Military Veterans. With approximately 120,000 military veterans of working age in Britain today, there is a wealth of skill and talent looking for new opportunities. Thakeham is keen to support the drive to place Service leavers in new careers in house building and construction.
Thakeham will be involved in several events over the coming months, promoting careers in house building and construction including:
The CTP Employment Fair in Southampton
We will be at the CTP Employment Fair and look forward to meeting those attending.For more information
A note from John Gaffney, Thakeham Group Construction Director
“Coming into the industry as a trainee myself, I find it incredibly rewarding to nurture the talent we have at Thakeham and to inspire those looking to house building as a career. Currently the industry faces several challenges: a well-publicised skills shortage; a lack of communication for the careers available in house building and construction and a need for an improved focus on training and development. If we can address communication, training and development – we can go some way to filling the skilled workforce gap.”
Creating New Opportunities
Images have been provided by Building Heroes which provides skills training to Military Veterans and support into employment in the building trades. Its aim is to tackle unemployment amongst those who have kept us safe by offering them a seamless transition to a new career in construction. Click here to find out more.
