Helping to lay the foundations for a new and exciting career in the construction industry is at the heart of the Midas Group vision for the future of the sector.
One of the UK’s largest privately-owned construction and property services companies, Midas Group is committed to offering rewarding construction apprenticeships in its bid to create a lasting and positive legacy in the communities it lives and works in.
An example of the impact of Midas Group’s support for apprenticeships can be seen at two of its recent local developments.
The £19million Saw Close leisure hub in Bath includes a hotel, casino and restaurants alongside the refurbishment of listed buildings on a site scheduled as an Ancient Monument.
Four new apprenticeship vacancies were among the employment and skills initiatives carried out at the site, in addition to the continuation of employment of thirteen other apprentice and trainee construction workers.
Alongside this, 14 weeks of work experience placements were provided with site visits for construction students at Bath College.
The £4million Building a Sound Future development at the St. Georges Concert Hall in Bristol has also created four new apprentice opportunities, as well as sustaining a further three roles, covering Plumbing, Electrical, Painting and Decorating as well as a Construction Technician.
Derek Quinn, Executive Director for Midas said: “Midas understands and supports the vital role of apprenticeships for a growing and successful construction sector, and across our business, we are currently supporting 20 people through apprenticeships at all levels.
“We are very proud of our work to guide a new generation of workers into the industry and are pleased to sponsor the Bristol and Bath Apprenticeship Awards to help highlight the importance of apprenticeships for a strong economy.”
